Parliamentary Procedure

Often called “parli pro,” this system is the way we do business at Girls State.  Simply put, the more you know about parli pro before you come, the better you will be able to navigate through the week. You are more than welcome to purchase your own copy of Robert’s Rules of Order and pour over it until you get to NNU. However, we use slightly modified rules at Girls State. If you have never even heard of parli pro before, here’s some resources to help you brush up:
