Roberts’ Rules of Order (Basic) – A.A. Edition

Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised, commonly referred to as Robert’s Rules of Order (or simply Robert’s Rules), is the most widely used manual of parliamentary procedure in the United States. It governs the meetings of a diverse range of organizations—including church groups, county commissions, homeowners associations, nonprofit associations, professional societies, school boards, and trade unions—that have adopted it as their parliamentary authority.

The document (and video) below are one A.A. members understanding of how Robert’s Rules have been used in service positions to conduct business meetings (Group, District, & Area) they have participated in while serving Alcoholics Anonymous in various service leadership positions. It’s a cheat sheet of sorts and was very helpful to this member when leading the bodies they served.
