Are your meetings lengthy and slow moving?  Is too much time taken up by
assertive members, to the exclusion of others?  Do things become unraveled
at the first sign of disagreement?  Do members get bogged down in arguments
about Robert’s Rules of Order?

If you responded with Yes to any of these questions, make sure to attend
this special workshop for division, round table, and chapter leaders.  In
it, Eli Mina, ALA Parliamentarian, will discuss the core principles of
debate and decision making, tools to make meetings well focused,
well-paced, and equally inclusive, and tips on how to address tough
situations and controversies during meetings.  Eli will also demystify key
issues with rules of order, and help you use them sensibly and

Each participant will receive a copy of Eli Mina’s book “*101 Boardroom
Problems and How to Solve Them”* and “*Mina’s Guide to Minute Taking”.*

*Date & time**:* Friday January 8, 2016, 1 - 2:30 p.m.  *Location:* TBD

*The Instructor*:

Eli Mina is a Vancouver based consultant who specializes in meeting
procedures, effective group decision making, and dealing with disputes and
controversies. Eli’s clients come from local government, school boards,
regulatory boards, native communities, law firms, credit unions, and the
