Purpose   Tick  The basic functions of the Parliamentarian are:
a) To act as consultant to Chairman 2 when he or she requests advice or information relative to the procedures to be adopted when difficulty or indecision arises.
b) To evaluate the conduct of the business session. This evaluation will make reference to the Chairman's manner and the application of the principles of meeting procedure by the Chairman and participating members.
When preparing Tick  The performance of this responsibility demands a thorough working knowledge of:
a) The Club Constitution and the Standard Bylaws for Clubs of Toastmasters International (Code 210-C).
b) The specific Addendum of Standard Club Options that apply to our club.
c) Guide for Meetings, by N. E. Renton, Law Book Co
d) The Chairman's Typical Agenda (also known as the Cheat Sheet).
e) The Chairman's Assignment Guide
What to do during your assignment Tick Evaluate most importantly how the Chairman 2 conducted him/herself according to the basic criteria: Impartial, firm, tactful, use of common sense.
Tick  Discuss the Chairman's knowledge of procedures and how well the agenda was followed.
  Tick  Evaluate also the person giving the motion, in terms of how well the motion was constructed, and their contribution to the debate.
  Tick  Provide a general evaluation of other participants (officers giving reports, debate participants) if it is instructive to do so.
  Tick You then hand back to the person who introduced you, usually the General Evaluator, though sometimes it is Chairman 2.
    That is the end of your assignment.
