Every month, we discuss parliamentary issues and study the workbook from the National Association of Parliamentarians. Members take turns conducting an educational feature from a chapter or section from RONR and delivering a half-hour presentation on the material.

Annual dues are only $10. There's no extra charge for how effectively you're going to run your meetings after you study with us!

WELCOME TO RSP!

The Riverside Society of Parliamentarians, founded in 1986 by the late
Dr. Charles Johnson,is a Roberts Rules of Order study group based in Riverside, California.

The Society meets the second Tuesday of each month from 7-9 PM at the
Fair Housing Council building 3933 Mission Inn Ave.in Riverside, California.

Try to park on the west side of the building.
The entry door we use is in the middle of the building up a little ramp.
If you go to the front door on the street, nobody will answer.
(There's also another parking lot on the east side of the building which you can park in,
but you still need to walk around to the west side of the building to get to our meeting room.)

Guests are always welcome. Dues? What dues? The dues are only $10 per year. Really. No foolin'.

What!? You don't have a PARLIAMENTARIAN for your group? We can fix that!

FLASH! OUR NEXT BEGINNER'S WORKSHOP WILL BE SATURDAY OCTOBER 21, 2017 AT THE DOWNTOWN RIVERSIDE LIBRARY
FROM 1-3 PM.
Cost is only $10 at the door. RSVP to judd3@aol.com by Wednesday October 18.

GREAT NEWS! FABULOUS NEWS! GET A LOAD OF THIS!

RSP members Bob, Ed, and Jennifer judged the FCCLA parliamentary procedure contest in April at the Riverside Convention Center.
The team from Rowland High went on to Nationals in Nashville in July and came away with a SILVER MEDAL!
(FCCLA is Family Career and Community Leaders of America)


FCCLA Rowland High team left to right Christian, Jackie, (Mr. Palmer), Shianleei, and Brenda


HERE'S THE STORY: The team won in Riverside without the benefit of an academic advisor at their high school.
In May, leader Brenda contacted RSP to find a coach. President Bob and member Ed went over to Rowland Heights
multiple times in June to coach the team.

What's the competition? The team had 15 minutes to put on a "skit" involving a mock meeting with two main motions,
amendments, and add-in privileged and incidental and subsidiary motions. At the contest, they do NOT know what the topics
of the motions are; they pick two motions out of a longer list and get to work! Jackie played "presiding officer" with
Shianleei serving as "secretary". Brenda and Christian were "members" rising to get recognized and make motions.

Jackie and Christian are going to the "great beyond" (off to college), but incoming seniors Brenda and Shianleei are eager
to form a new team for 2017-2018!
