This workshop is for active members of local units who wish to take their knowledge of parliamentary procedures to the next level. The session provides excellent training for those who currently hold leadership positions within the organization or are aspiring to be leaders within OECTA.
The workshop will review basic parliamentary principles and procedures. Participants will be given a lot of “how to …” ideas and will learn strategies for running meetings effectively; allowing the membership to efficiently express its collective will. They will also learn how to maintain proper debating protocol in deliberative sessions as well as how to deal with conflict on the floor and challenges to rulings by the chair.
The Parliamentary Training Workshop, led by Carol Merrett and Bernie VanDenBelt of the Speakers’ Bureau, will be held at the provincial office, 65 St. Clair Avenue East, Toronto on Saturday, November 10, 2018 starting at 10:00 a.m. and ending at approximately 3:00 p.m.
Registration will be limited to 15 participants on a first-come, first-served basis, so book early! Preference will be given to those individuals who have not previously attended an OECTA parliamentary training workshop.
The deadline to register for the meeting is October 26. Please use the link below.
