This easy-to-use, paperback volume―the popular alternative to Robert’s Rules―is the most comprehensive, understandable, and logical guide to smooth-running, professional meetings.

From the Back Cover:

"The Standard Code is a user-friendly parliamentary guide for the 21st Century. Utilizing today's language, it is an appropriate and exciting alternative to other archaic and cumbersome authorities." Dr. James T. Fanno, PRP Speaker, House of Delegates American Dental Association "A copy of the 4th Edition of The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure should be passed to every new president along with the gavel." Sarah Ann Long, President American Library Association "The timeless contribution of Sturgis' concise presentation of the ‘right way’ to conduct meetings for best results, while maintaining collegiality and efficiency, has guided many successful individuals and organizations..." John A. Knote, M.D. Speaker, House of Delegates American Medical Association "Many of our newer, less experienced leaders were so intimidated by the complexity of Robert's Rules that they simply did not participate during our annual conventions. The Standard Code is a more common sense approach to parliamentary procedure, one that simplifies the movement of business on the floor while still maintaining order during heated of debates." Patricia Friend, International President Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO "This new edition of the Standard Code is easy to read and understand. Some of the concepts in earlier editions have been refined and clarified, while retaining the basic system that has served democratic societies so well for so long." Loretta Simonson Former President National Association of Parliamentarians "The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure is comprehensive and easily understandable, allowing the average member to interpret parliamentary procedure, thus permitting our meetings to proceed fairly and efficiently." Perry Opin, D.D.S., M.Sc.D. Speaker, House of Delegates American Association of Orthodontists "The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure presents a clear, logical approach to parliamentary procedure which can be applied in practice without the necessity of becoming enmeshed in detailed rules rarely if ever encountered in present-day meetings." Norman Horrocks, Ph.D. Parliamentarian Canadian Library Association
