The modern rules of order

by Donald Tortorice. American Bar Association. 4th edition. 2014.
60 pages.

The author believes that the standard Robert's Rules of Order are not appropriate for many meeting situations including corporate board meetings. Unfortunately, there has not been a commonly accepted alternative. With the Modern Rules of Order the author proposes a "more modern simplified procedure that promotes efficiency, decorum and fairness in a form that can be easily mastered and later referred to with ease." In furtherance of that goal the author has only fifteen rules. He includes a brief chapter explaining the rules how the rules work in practice. Additional chapters provide general information conducting a meeting and provide examples of business meeting requisites; taking minutes and the agenda.
