Town Meeting Time
The Massachusetts Moderators Association publishes a handbook of parliamentary law called Town Meeting Time: A Handbook of Parliamentary Law. It is similar to Robert’s Rules of Order, but different in many respects to address the differences between procedures optimal for a town meeting and those optimal for other bodies/organizations. Many towns’ by-laws and/or traditions specify that their town meetings will be conducted in accordance with Town Meeting Time. It is considered the moderator’s bible and essential for understanding the details of town meeting procedure.
