Robert's Rules

Our OCDP Parliamentarian, Murray Gorchow, has put together some Robert's Rules resources. You don't have to be an expert on Robert's Rules to participate in our meetings, but we hope that this information helps our meetings to run smoothly and to help everyone get more comfortable with the basics of Robert's Rules.

Click here for a Robert's Rules of Order Cheat Sheet, and here for a Summary of Motions. There are many others available online.
Here is a link to a YouTube video summary of the basics of Robert's Rules called "Robert's Rules of Order in a Nutshell":
We also recommend that OCDP membership feel free to go online by way of Google or YouTube to get even more information.

For those that are interested, you can also purchase Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, 12th Edition, through the National Association of Parliamentarians, or We highly recommend Robert's Rules of Order - Newly Revised IN BRIEF, 3rd Edition, as a more user-friendly, less expensive concise guide, as compared to the rather dense complete Robert's Rules. In either case, we recommend the spiral-bound versions.
