Other Educational Sessions
The Art of Presiding – March and April
Offered approximately every other year, usually in odd numbered years, the Art of Presiding class runs for five weeks. This course has a dedicated teaching time of about an hour at the beginning of each session, followed by more practice time by individual students in a safe learning environment. It is recommended that students take the Practical Application Class before taking this class but it is not mandatory. Students who take this class will develop more confidence and greater knowledge on running meetings.
Teaching Moments After Unit Meetings
CCPU has an Educational Chair that schedules an approximately one hour training session after each Unit meeting. The session may be presented by a member that has attended a state or national training meeting and is presenting what they have learned, or by a member that wants to review a specific area of Parliamentary Procedure.
