Meetings can easily become contentious, arduous, tedious, and unproductive. Professional parliamentarians are trained to help you overcome obstacles making your meetings more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. As your parliamentarian, we can:

Before the meeting:

Help plan the agenda
Prepare scripts so you don't have to fumble for the right words
Help prepare the rules for the meeting that protect the minority's right to be heard, while preserving the majority's right to decide.
Organize a system of speaker recognition
Train tellers for elections  and counted votes
Prepare visual aids to help the assembly follow complicated motions, resolutions and bylaw changes

During the meeting:

Advise the chair on parliamentary issues
Help answer parliamentary questions that may arise
Allow the chair to focus on the members, while we focus on the procedure
