"Riddick's Rules of Procedure" is a manual on parliamentary procedure written by Floyd M. Riddick and co-authored by Miriam Butcher. [cite book |last=Riddick |first=Floyd M. |authorlink=Floyd M. Riddick |coauthors=Miriam Butcher |title=Riddick's Rules of Procedure : Modern Guide to Faster and More Effective Meetings |date=1985 |url= |publisher=Charles Scribner's Sons |location=New York |language= |isbn=0-684-18427-3 ] The book, based on Riddick's experience as parliamentarian of the United States Senate as well as the procedures of assemblies using parliamentary manuals such as "Robert's Rules of Order", is arranged in a glossary style.

"Riddick's Rules" is a book of common parliamentary usage for civic clubs and organizations. Riddick also wrote "Riddick's Senate Procedure" that contains contemporary precedents and practices of the US Senate and which is still being updated and used by the Senate. Riddick was associated with the American Institute of Parliamentarians (AIP) where he founded an annual Practicum (to study parliamentary procedure) that now bears his name. His book has been used by AIP in their teachings, workshops, and materials.
