+In the Name of God: who was, and is, and is to come. Amen 

I’m pretty sure that many of us in this room have been involved in meetings that were guided by Roberts Rules of Order – or maybe I should say that many of us have been in a meeting where we have been subjected to Roberts Rules. Roberts Rules are the most widely-used manual of parliamentary procedure in the United States. They are named after Henry Martyn Robert who was a US Army officer and who published his first manual in 1876. He was trying to adapt the rules and practices of United States Congress to organizations.
