About Me

I am a licensed Professional Engineer. My background is in civil engineering, which incidentally was the profession of General Henry M. Robert. I actively volunteer my time in the Toastmasters organization and have given some presentations on parliamentary procedure.

I am thoroughly familiar with RONR (11th ed.) and RONRIB (2nd ed.). In addition, I have looked through the older editions of Robert's Rules (RO, ROR, and RONR) as well as General Robert's Parliamentary Practice and Parliamentary Law.

I have also checked out C. Alan Jenning's Robert's Rules for Dummies (3rd ed.), Jim Slaughter's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Parliamentary Procedure Fast-Track, and Nancy Sylvester's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Robert's Rules (2nd ed.). There were other books about Robert's Rules that I looked at, some of which have accurate information, while others contain many errors.

The internet has lots of information on Robert's Rules as well, although I caution against anyone relying on such information (unless it's on the Official Robert's Rules of Order Web Site). I have spent time improving the Wikipedia article on Robert's Rules of Order by contributing more than two-thirds of the content on that page. Also on Wikipedia, I created a List of books with Robert's Rules in the title and have edited numerous other articles relating to parliamentary procedure.

Other books I have read include the American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure (AIPSC), Demeter's Manual of Parliamentary Law and Procedure (Blue Book Edition), and James Lochrie's Meeting Procedures: Parliamentary Law and Rules of Order for the 21st Century.

After all this reading, there is one quote that sticks in my mind:

“More common sense and fewer useless rules are needed.”Parliamentary Law, page 239.

Feel free to send me a message. I always welcome positive feedback!

And if you're wondering, my first and last names are pronounced like "Hue Win".
