Darlene T. Allen, PRP, was elected president of the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP) during its biennial business meeting, September 5. She was previously vice president of the board. Allen has more than 20 years’ experience serving NAP members through various roles at the national, state, and unit levels. She served as a district representative to the national board in 2011-2013 and as a director-at-large in 2015-2017.
Allen stressed her commitment to embed regular assessment of our efforts into a process that promotes transparency, teamwork, and trust.
“To remain relevant, our organization must change to meet member and potential member needs, and to ensure financial solvency,” she stated.
The association will experience two important milestones during Allen’s term: NAP’s 90th anniversary and the introduction of the 12th edition of Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised at the 2020 NAP Training Conference, August 28-30, in San Antonio, Texas.
