This year’s Texas FFA business session was held during the fifth general session Thursday. Many items of business were presented, including an amendment to adopt Robert’s Rules of Order’s policy on quorum.
According to the Texas FFA Constitution, the advisor of the State winning chapter conducting team and a registered parliamentarian are to be on hand during the business session. This year’s advisor was Paul Booth of the Sandra Day O’ Connor chapter and the registered parliamentarian was Roger Warman of Mildura Enterprises.
“I think the business session today went very well,” Booth said. “Mason and the other state officers did a really good job.”
It takes many officers and others working together to have an efficient and effective business session and Warman took note.
“It went very smooth,” Warman said.
In recent years there has been a push by some in the association to adopt Robert’s Rules of Order and during Thursday’s business session an amendment was passed to adopt Robert’s rules policy on quorum, but not the entire set of rules.
“Gray’s doesn’t even mention quorum,” Booth said. “You have to have a quorum to hold official meetings.”
