After a while of being quiet, I am re-starting this blog as there seems to be a lot of interest.
Please submit any questions you have and please do subscribe.
For your interest, I am based in Perth Western Australia. I can answer most questions about meetings in Australia and New Zealand and also the UK. I can answer general questions about meetings in other parts of the world but if you are from the US and have a procedural question, I strongly suggest you read the post about Robert’s Rules: http://masterofmeetings.com/index2/can-you-use-roberts-rules-for-meetings-in-australia and if you are in Australia or New Zealand, I suggest you read this post: http://masterofmeetings.com/index2/what-are-the-main-authorities-or-references-for-meeting-procedure-in-australia-and-new-zealand
Please note: I am not a lawyer (although I have studied law) and my advice should not be taken as legal advice.
I am a practitioner in meeting procedure and I frequently advise organisations and individuals, including lawyers, about the technicalities of meeting procedure. I put the following disclaimer on most posts:
