Robert’s Rules of Order

Robert’s Rules of Order

What are Robert’s Rules of Order?
They are a set of guidelines for conducting business first written in 1876. Clubs, organizations, associations, and conventions generally utilize Robert’s Rules for business meetings.

Why are Robert’s Rules Important?
These guidelines allow everyone to be heard so this group can make decisions without confusion. This version of Robert’s Rules has been modified to fit the needs of Area 47. Today, Robert’s Rules of Order are the basic meeting operation for AA at the District, Area, Regional and National level, so it’s important that everyone know these basic procedures. They should not be utilized in a way to stifle full discussion of an issue. We use these guidelines, but keep in mind that they must occasionally give way to the 12 Traditions.
