Central A&M FFA participates in Parliamentary Procedure CDE

On Wednesday, February 27, the Central A&M FFA traveled to Lake Land College in Mattoon to compete in the District IV Parliamentary Procedure Contest.

The Parliamentary Procedure CDE is where a school has to officially and properly run a mock meeting. The members are given a main motion (or topic) to discuss for 10 minutes and then judged on how well they adhere to Robert’s Rules of Order, the book which defines the rules of Parliamentary Procedure.

The Central A&M team was made up of Chairperson: Abbey Burgener, Secretary/Floormember: Lisa Parker, and Floormembers: Kelsey Burgener, Nathan Hardeman, Tyler Adcock, and Dean Adcock. Congratulations to everyone on doing a great job and keep up the hard work.
