Course Description: Running a meeting, or exercising your rights as a member, can be challenging. Union bylaws typically require meetings to comply with Robert’s Rules of Order. This course will give Chairs and Members the tools they need to have more effective union meetings that will be in compliance with their bylaws. Recording secretary responsibilities and meeting notices and minutes will also be covered.


Instructor Bio: Patti Legault-Frank has been a consulting Parliamentarian and Governance Specialist and an instructor at The Labor Guild since 1981. In addition to local, state, and international labor unions, she has also consulted to credit unions; school committees; professional and social organizations. Her Labor Guild courses have been on Union Meetings with Robert’s Rules of Order; Reviewing and Amending Union Bylaws; and, on Union Elections. Her union consulting on organizational governance has included reviewing and refining governance documents (bylaws and rules, policies, and procedures); Officer, Executive Board, and member training; rendering formal parliamentary opinions when internal governance documents are silent or ambiguous; and, serving as parliamentarian at membership meetings and annual conventions.

As a prelude to consulting, Legault-Frank was with the Massachusetts Teachers Association from 1976 to 1986, where she was both the Governance Specialist and also represented eight local affiliates in contract negotiations and enforcement. While at MTA, Legault-Frank also served as President and Negotiations Chair of MTASO (MTA Staff Organization), the independent union comprised of her fellow staffers.
