Hello GWADA members,

We will be holding a Parliamentary Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 19th. Not familiar with parliamentary procedure? It is a commonly used set of rules to help meetings go smoothly. It allows for an organized structure so that everyone's voice can be heard and taken seriously.

Benefits of understanding and using the parliamentary procedure include:
Better leadership
Faster and more efficient meetings
Prevention of illegal actions
Improved communication
Knowing how to use parliamentary procedure is a valuable public service skill for anyone who is a member of a club, committee, legislative body, or who is interested in establishing their own organization.

As a member of GWADA, this workshop is being offered to you free of charge. Hope to see you there!

What: Parliamentary Workshop
Presented by: Mr. Robert Weinstock
When: Saturday, Nov. 19, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Where: Gallaudet University, Edward Miner Gallaudet (EMG) Building - 1st Floor Conference Room
