Guide To Meeting Procedure

Written by Lynley Aldridge, ALIANZA, RLIANZA, B.AppSci 
Access Librarian, CPIT, Christchurch -



Following the LIANZA Aoraki Branch AGM in 2013 it was noted there was no meeting procedure guide for branch chairs to follow.  While this guide has been created for LIANZA it is applicable to a variety of organisations.

This guide is an introduction only to meeting procedure and does not include the depth of content that many books cover.   The intent is to create a professional development tool that covers the key points and acts as a guide to running formal meetings in any situation or organisation.  

As the LIANZA National Office manages many of the financial processes for LIANZA branches some steps are not required for branch AGM’s.  Where LIANZA practice differs from standard practice a note has been made in italics.

This guide does not cover in detail the roles of the secretary or treasurer.
