Parliamentary Procedures in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
The Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) designates Roberts Rules of Order, Newly Revised the latest edition, as the parliamentary authority to be used in governing body meetings. This booklet is an introductory summary of the purpose and practice of common parliamentary principles. It is not a substitute for Roberts Rules of Order, Newly Revised, but rather, a way of understanding the basic principles behind the development of parliamentary procedures which should make Robert more accessible. While the booklet is specifically developed for clerks and moderators, it is also useful for any member of a governing body, and is easily read and used during a meeting.
