Webinar Description:
Churches should select and implement a specific body of parliamentary procedure in order to efficiently consider business and properly make legally sound decisions.  
Yet some churches have not adopted procedures, while others do not recall what they have adopted—and still others know the procedures they adopted, but do not know if they correctly follow them. This uncertainty leaves many congregations open to the possibilities of disorganized meetings, haphazard decision-making—and possible legal scrutiny down the road. In this free, one-hour webinar featuring attorneys Richard Hammar and Sarah Merkle—two well-respected voices on the topics of church governance and business meetings—participants will learn more about the processes of adopting procedures; the various types of procedures available to adopt (including Hammar’s analysis of the new 12th edition of Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised); the best practices for implementing and following those procedures; and more.
