What Are Your Favorite Robert’s Rules Resources?

Adaptistration People 157I recently joined a board of directors and have been tasked with updating the organization’s Robert’s Rules of Order guideline. My plan is move from the existing text-heavy document (that no one reads or follows) to something that utilizes a user-friendly visual approach.

It’s been at least seven years since I’ve taken a deep dive into Robert’s Rules resources. As such, I’m curious to know which resources are your favorites.

Take a moment to post a reply below or reach out with a direct email or through Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.

Thank you in advance and I’ll see about making whatever I come up with available as a free resource once it’s ready for public consumption.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
