In Spring 2020, as we adapted to remote work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, librarians at the University at Albany created a professional development program to teach library staff about parliamentary procedure, particularly the ways that it can be adapted for virtual meetings. Library staff were invited to a mock library faculty meeting in which the group role-played the chair, parliamentarian, and faculty body. PAC marketed the event as a useful workshop for anyone interested in learning about Robert’s Rules of Order or understanding how parliamentary procedure helps meetings run smoothly.
