STEVEN T. ANDERSON, PRP
PROFESSIONAL REGISTERED PARLIAMENTARIAN
WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL REGISTERED PARLIAMENTARIAN (PRP)?
A Parliamentarian, or parliamentary procedures consultant, is an expert in interpreting and applying the “Rules of Order” for meetings. These rules, especially Robert’s Rules of Order, emphasize the right of the minority to be heard and the majority to decide, and enable groups to efficiently and fairly discuss and determine actions to be taken.
A Professional Registered Parliamentarian is among a select few trained and certified by the National Association of Parliamentarians to meet exacting standards of expertise in parliamentary procedure. Consulting with a Professional Parliamentarian can bring your organization the benefits of this high level of parliamentary proficiency backed by dedicated study and broad experience.
DO YOU NEED A PARLIAMENTARIAN?
Are your meetings discordant, or one-sided, or just an aimless waste of everyone’s time? A Professional Parliamentarian can show you how to improve efficiency, reduce confusion, and safeguard the rights of all members. Clear procedures mean more balanced debates, more credible elections, more productive meetings. And better meetings mean better decisions.
Are your officers new to their jobs? Are your delegates unsure of their responsibilities? Are your members too intimidated by "the rules" to participate effectively? A Professional Parliamentarian offers a wide range of training seminars, customized to your specific needs.
Having problems interpreting your bylaws? A Professional Parliamentary Opinion can help clear up your questions.
Writing or revising your bylaws, or other governing documents? Consulting a Professional Parliamentarian from the start can save you time and trouble.
