"An organization’s members who are educated in parliamentary procedure, can make productive business meetings."

The National Association of Parliamentarians is focused on education.

The National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP) serves the needs of today’s parliamentarians and those interested in learning about parliamentary procedure. NAP is the premier provider of education and resources that facilitate efficient and democratic decision-making processes. NAP’s educational resources take a number of shapes:

Live events featuring multiple concurrent sessions on a wide range of topics presented by top parliamentarians in the field.

Webinars and online courses about parliamentary fundamentals that are recorded for easy, convenient access after the fact.

Our learning laboratories help parliamentarians hone their skills in presiding and serving as a parliamentarian, and professional responsibility. To learn about labs in your area, contact Steve Glanstein, PRP, chair of the Professional Development Committee

Exclusive publications, study tools, and teaching materials on parliamentary fundamentals available in NAP’s Bookstore. In addition, we offer National Parliamentarian, a quarterly publication with in-depth educational articles.

NAP’s biennial business meetings are a unique experience where parliamentary procedure is in the spotlight.
