The Meeting Manager: A Guide for Business Meetings. Gloria Resnick. Cleveland, Ohio: Meeting Procedures Company, 1983. $1.50. (Available from publisher at 2750 Cedar Road, Cleveland, OH 44122.)

The Meeting Manageris a quick parliamentary procedure reference. It suggests an order of business; identifies appropriate motions for many purposes; summarizes, in table form, how to treat different motions; and recommends the content of minutes. It's based on Roberts Rules of Order, revised. Resnick wrote the guide for her teaching in Ohio.

The format is a handy 10 x 17 "fold out." It would be useful to officers in many Extension-related organizations.
