The purpose of the Michigan State Association of Parliamentarians (MSAP) is to study, promote, teach, and disseminate the principles of parliamentary law. We are members of the National Association of Parliamentarians.
Our state membership includes parliamentarians from six local units and members at large from around the state and Canada.
Chartered in 1968, our units offer educational programs in parliamentary procedure and effective meeting managment for all kinds of organizations and for all ages. Our members serve their local communities as leaders of organizations and parliamentary advisors.
Many non-profit organizations hire parliamentarians for annual meetings, particularly if those meetings are part of a convention. While it's important to have a parliamentarian for major meetings, a parliamentarian can help any organization on an ongoing basis.
