Register now for an applied class on learning how to lead others through effective and efficient use of parliamentary procedure in meetings. Great for leaders (or future leaders) of organizations and clubs.

Two Fast Facts:

  1. According to Forbes, there are approximately 55 million meetings happening daily, and at least half of them are a waste of time, not achieving their intended objectives.
  2. Inefficient meetings cost businesses a projected total of $541 billion in resources last year. A study by Doodle, the online scheduling service, analyzed data from 19 million meetings and interviewed 6,500 professionals across the US, UK, Germany, and Switzerland. Doodle found that the majority of the meetings observed were poorly organized and therefore not only a waste of time, but also a waste of money and resources
