**All of the educational sessions (not presiding breakouts) will be recorded and be made available for those that registered to attend.  Once all of the videos are edited and uploaded, attendees will have access for about sixty days.

The 2022 East Coast Practicum will be virtual and will be 3½ days in duration.  The schedule has been designed to allow for full educational opportunities while trying to eliminate Zoom fatigue!

AIP practicum labs, which provide a safe learning environment, have been increased by 25%. The times for the presiding sessions are being scheduled over the 3½ days at various times.

The topic will be Conventions and Houses of Delegates.  The instructors are AIP President Al Gage, CPP-T, and AIP Parliamentarian, and former Speaker of the American Dental Association, Glen Hall, CP-T.

We will begin on Thursday, June 2nd promptly at 3:30 p.m. (EDT); and 11:00 a.m. (EDT) Friday through Sunday, June 5th when we will end around 6:00 p.m. (EDT). A social hour is planned at the conclusion of each day.


The presiding sessions divided into three levels consisting of Basic, Intermediate and Advance. If you are wondering, at the basic level, the focus is on the fundamentals, with emphasis on language, cadence, and poise.  

The Basic Level practice scenarios will cover:

- Main Motion

- Single Subsidiary motions

- Amend (including the AMP method of stating amendments)

- Refer

- Postpone Definitely

- Previous Question/ Close Debate

- Recess

- Taking votes using Zoom "nonverbal feedback," unanimous consent, show

           of hands, by voice, rising.  

The Intermediate and Advance Levels will separate AIPSC from RONR authorities and add the precedence of motions, fluency in processing motions and that the proposed motion is in order.

In addition, the Intermediate Level builds on items already covered to include:

- Point of Order

- Appeal

- Suspend the Rule

- Reconsider

- Incidental motions

- Renewal of motions

- Secondary Amendment

- Filling blanks (AIPSC)

- Table (AIPSC)

The Advance Level practice will focus on greater fluency and presiding judgment. In addition to those things covered in the Basic and Intermediate level, specific motions may include:

- Object of the Consideration (RONR)

- "Stacked motions"

- Bring Back

- Filling blanks (RONR)

- Adopt in Lieu of (AIPSC)

- Table (RONR)


To ensure an adequate number of facilitators for the presiding practices, the registration will be capped at 150 participants with any additional registrants placed on a provisional list.
