One of the highlights of the convention was when Henry M. Robert III was designated as an honorary president of NAP. Robert, the grandson of General Henry M. Robert, helped author the 7th edition of Robert’s Rules of Order and has been the senior member of the authorship team for the last four editions of RONR. He has been a registered member of the National Association of Parliamentarians since 1981 and has been a Professional Registered Parliamentarian since 1983. After the resolution that allows honorary officer status to be granted by a two-thirds vote of the convention upon recommendation by the NAP Board of Directors, Robert was presented with a 24-carat-gold-plated gavel in a presentation box.
