NAP established the Commission on Credentialing at the 2015 Convention to create and administer a new system for accrediting Registered and Professional Registered Parliamentarians. Since that time, the Commission has been meeting regularly and has devised a substantially revised way to differentiate between what will be expected of new RPs versus PRPs. It has released its preliminary report, “Criteria for Credentialing,” which will be the subject of a two-hour general session at the upcoming 2016 National Association of Parliamentarians Training Conference, August 26, in Broomfield, Colorado. NAP members, whether or not they will be attending the conference, are encouraged to read this important new document: Criteria for Credentialing (Preliminary Edition, August 2016).
