Objective 3: Explain basic parliamentary procedure used in an FFA meeting.
Parliamentary Procedure The key to being involved in FFA meetings is to understand parliamentary procedure. Parliamentary procedure is a certain set of rules known as parliamentary law or Roberts Rules of Order used to maintain order in a meeting.
The main purposes of parliamentary law is to: Focus on one item at a time. Extend courtesy to everyone. Observe rule of the majority. Ensure the rights of the minority.
The Gavel The gavel is the instrument used for maintaining order during a meeting. The gavel is tapped a different number of times to signify: Single tap - call to be seated Two taps - calls meeting to order Three taps - calls members to stand during ceremonies.
The four common voting methods included in FFA meetings are: Voice vote - saying aye or no Rising vote - standing or show of hands Secret ballot - written ballot Roll call - secretary polls members
Main Motion The main motion is used to obtain group approval for a new project or some other course of action. I move that are the three words used to begin a main motion. All main motions need a second before they can be voted upon.
There are four motion classifications in parliamentary procedure: Privileged - motions not related to the main motion. Incidental - used to provide proper and fair treatment to all members. Subsidiary - motions related to the main motion. Unclassified - motions that bring questions back before the assembly.
Amendments are used to change or improve a motion. Three ways to amend a motion include: by addition. by substitution. by striking out. After an amendment has been offered, it requires a second.
There are several motions that can be used to delay action on the motion under consideration: To postpone definitely - postpone to a definite time. To lay on the table - tables a motion and must be taken from the table to be acted on. To refer to a committee - refers to a committee for further study. ( may be a standing or specially appointed committee)
The motion point of order is used when a member believes a parliamentary error has been made.
The motion to adjourn is used when it is time to close a meeting.
