The proper way to conduct a business meeting is the goal of the Parliamentary Procedure CDE. Members from each team representing each school must have an extensive knowledge of parliamentary Procedure, as they must conduct the meeting, while being challenged in their knowledge of Roberts Rules of Order. The secretary must keep accurate minutes of this session problems. The remaining members of the team are the floor members. Floor members make motions and follow the proceedings of discussion and other business which takes place in meetings. The floor members are to challenge each president with knowledge and skills. All contestants are judged on their individual Parliamentary knowledge, as well as their public speaking skills and power of expression.
The section 7 Parliamentary procedure CDE was held December 16th at Seneca High School.
These FFA members prepared for this event by learning Parliamentary Procedure in Introduction to Agriculture class and by practicing before and after school.
