Important Monthly Meeting News!
We’re continuing to meet online via Zoom until otherwise noted. All meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30am. As usual, there is a brief unit business meeting followed by a 45-60 minute educational session via Zoom. Everyone is welcome to attend – members, folks from other units, anyone with an interest in parliamentary procedures and Robert’s Rules of Order, or seeking assistance from a registered parliamentarian.
Update: We are now using the state association’s Zoom account, and each meeting’s login with be different. If you are not on the Agua Fria Unit’s mailing list, please email MeetingInfo@AAFU.org for meeting details.
ASAP Annual Meeting Videos
The 2020 Annual Meeting of the Arizona State Association of Parliamentarians was held via Zoom on Saturday August 8, 2020 from 9am til 3:30pm. During the day there were three wonderful presentations which you might be interested in seeing… and are available online at our YouTube channel home page or the ASAP Annual Meeting 2020 playlist.
- Revising Robert’s Rules by Dan Seabold, PRP. Dan takes us through the interesting story of how he was recruited to be on the Robert’s Rules Committee, and then gives us some insight into how the revision process works.
- Fun With Amendments by Paul Lamb, PRP-R, CPT. Paul gives us a fast-paced 4-minute scripted motion with amendments to follow (or at least try to!), and then follows up with advice on how and when to “fill in the blanks”.
- NAP Update by Darlene Allen, PRP and President of the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). Darlene provided an overview of business and financial information for both the national and state associations (NAP and ASAP). She explained the goals for20% increases in member recruitment, retention, and reactivation (of prior members).
AAFU gets together most months (not during the summer) to have a real meeting, using Robert’s Rules of Order. We learn by doing! And the meeting is followed by an educational program suitable to beginner to intermediate level. Learn More
This is the “Cliff Notes” version of the “big daddy” book. Geared to the beginner and those in smaller meetings, most of our educational sessions use this book as a reference.Learn More
A hefty 800 pages overall, this book is the definitive source for “Robert’s Rules”. Dip your toes in the parliamentary water with In Brief first, and dive in to RONR once you get your feet wet.Learn More
