Guidelines for Meetings:

  1. Washburn Miller Parent Group will start and end on time.
  2. We have an agenda. If you have a topic you would like to add, please contact the meeting organizer one week before the meeting – they will add you to the agenda.
  3. Only one person speaks at a time.
  4. Honor the limitations of time; speak concisely.
  5. We’re all volunteers – please respect everyone and do not dominate the conversation
  6. There will be a "parking lot" for topics not on the agenda. In the event we go off topic you will be asked to hold that thought until it can be added to a future agenda or can be discussed after the meeting.
