General Meeting Rules

The Federation of Students General Meetings are governed by Robert's Rules to ensure meetings are held in an orderly fashion. Robert's Rules is essentially a guide of the rules, ethics, and customs that are followed during the meeting. We understand the rules aren't always easy to follow along with so we've created a guide to help!
