This is the most useful book ever developed to help anyone run a great meeting. It can be read in an hour or two and used for years. Rules for both Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised and American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure are included. The table of contents makes it easy to find information quickly.

There  are two sections: Meetings Explained and Motions Explained. Meetings Explained walks you through a meeting from call to order to adourn. Motions Explained gives virtually every motion that can come up in a meeting, arranged by its purpose rather than by its parliamentary classification. This information can be applied to any type of meeting from the smallest board or committee to the largest house of delegates.

A Great Meeting Needs a Great Chair is the closest thing you’ll find to a magic gavel.

 Have you ever known a person elected as treasurer who works into the wee hours to keep their association or club finances in perfect balance? Whether using an abacus, stones, a calculator, or fingers and toes, the job is all about being able to answer basic questions about the financial assets of the association.

 

The fundamental nature of the treasurer’s position is more closely linked to the size of the association than any of the other leadership positions. The treasurer of a local club will likely be the sole keeper of the association’s financial records and perform all of the tasks associated with the position, while the treasurer of a large national association will probably never write a check or make a deposit. We refer to the treasurer who performs the financial tasks as the practicing treasurer, and the treasurer who works with a paid staff who performs the financial tasks as the fiduciary treasurer. Whatever the tasks, all treasurers have the responsibility to serve as the elected custodian of the association’s funds.

 

Like the other tools in the Great Leaders Collection, there  are two sections: a front section that explains how to make the financial handoff from one treasurer to another, basic records, and instructions for conducting audits, creating budgets, and other financial reports; the back section contains forms and templates for invoices, receipts, reimbursements, and a variety of reports. Sample financial policies are also included.

 

Where procedural rules are quoted, they are substantially in conformance with the rules contained in Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, eleventh edition (Da Capo Press 2011), also called RONR, and American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure (McGraw Hill, 2012), also called AIPSC. However, for clarity and ease of use by the average member, some of the more detailed points of these books have been omitted. For complex situations, we suggest that the reader refer to the association's specific parliamentary authority. Additional information has been included that is based on the author's experience with boards of directors and organizations throughout the country.

 

A Great Meeting Needs a Great Treasurer is the perfect resource for the treasurer.

 

 

Is there a science to love?

In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now.

Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes.

In Attached, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:

*ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back.

*AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.

*SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.

Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.
