“Motions:  What are they and should we worry about them”

Please join the Scholars Gild at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, November 17, when our discussion will be lead by Mr. Jonathan M Jacobs, Parliamentary Consultant. Mr. Jacobs will present the concepts and practice of parliamentary motions.  We will cover main motions, what they can do, how they are made, and common secondary motions that are likely to be encountered at a meeting. These concepts and practices play a critical role in understanding the operation of legislative bodies, including the town meetings of Arden, Ardentown, and Ardencroft.
