PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURES

The ASU Executive Council has abbreviated Robert's Rules of Order books available in the Office of Student Life for check. 

What is Parliamentary Procedure?

  • Parliamentary procedure, or parliamentary law, is the code of rules and ethics for working together in groups.
  • Parliamentary law refers to the rules, laws, or regulations of organizations, governing the orderly, expeditious and efficient transaction of business and meetings and conventions. Without rules, there would be injustice and confusion. Hence, it is as necessary to follow the rules of parliamentary law as it is to follow the rules of a ball game or a card game. 

Why is it important?

  • All members have equal rights. 
  • Minority rights must be protected. 
  • Full and free discussion is an essential right. 
  • Use simplest and most direct procedure. 
  • Only one question considered at a time. 
  • Logical precedence governs order of discussion.  
  • Members must be recognized before speaking. 
  • All remarks are directed through the chair. 
  • No member may speak twice to the same question until all others have had an opportunity to speak Members may not question the character or motives of other members. 
  • Members have a right at all times to know what question is before the assembly and what affirmative and negative votes mean.
