    Assisting Special Needs in the Assembly

     Parliamentary Exercises
    The drills of Henry M. Robert

    edited by Kirk Overbey

    Originally published in 1921 as part of the book "Parliamentary Practice,"
    the seven drills have been updated.

    Take advantage of the work of the master himself and learn how to preside effectively
    with all the motions.   Practice these drills and you will be confident and prepared.

    Excellent for use with youth competition preparation (FBLA, BPA, SkillsUSA, FCCLA, HOSA)
