Description

This book deals with all the stages and aspects of a ‘meeting’—right from the beginning till the end. It is as essential to every chairman as a sail is to a navigator. It gives a vivid picture of functions such as debates, motions, points of order, quorum, rules and regulations, etc, with a special review of the ‘noconfidence motion,’ pointing out the invidious distinction between the present parliamentary procedure and the procedure the parliamentarians themselves prescribe by law, for other public bodies at the lower level. The unequal nature of qualifications and disqualifications of members at different levels is also pointed out. The rights and duties of the members in the corporate world are highlighted with special features such as defamation, contempt of court and judicial review, although not in a strict sense a part of the meeting; as well as unparliamentary phrases that have been added to enhance the practicality and usefulness of the book. The book is a very concentrated attempt to promote standardisation of the rules and laws of ‘meetings’.
