A staff person of a committee of the Legislature emailed these "Rules of Engagement": [bolding by me]
"1. There is no food or beverage allowed in the committee room by the public.
2. Please turn off all electronic devices. Violators of this rule will be fined.
3. If you are testifying or providing information to the committee, you must, provide 20 copies of the testimony to the committee clerk. They must include name and affiliation of the presenter as well as the date and which piece of legislation it pertains to. You can simply add the [reference] number to the top. Please note extra copies are a courtesy and not a requirement.
4. If you would like to speak to one of my members please approach my desk and ask to see them. I will be happy to get them for you. It’s inappropriate to approach the horseshoe.
5. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me."
So what do you think, should association groups have "rules of engagement" too? Do you already have some?
