Parli Pro Training

I ran a training this evening on parliamentary procedure for Ajapeu Lodge’s executive board.  I went over the parts of a meeting, how minutes should be taken, and finally how to pass a motion with critical rules like “don’t let anyone talk twice until everyone’s talked once”.  These rules were quickly ignored as adults leaped on top of kids and may have found ways to interrupt themselves, but one rule stuck: for the rest of the evening, in accordance with the “courtesy to the chair” section, the lodge chief, Theo, was addressed as “madam chair”.
