ABOUT US
In 1946, seven women leaders of the Kalamazoo area asked Professor Otto Yntema of Western Michigan University to teach a class in Parliamentary Procedure at the Kalamazoo Harding School. The following year, the same women organized the Kalamazoo Parliamentary Club.

On October 6, 1967, the club was granted a charter by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PARLIAMENTARIANS® (NAP) under the name of Kalamazoo Parliamentary Law Unit (KPLU). The unit is affiliated with the Michigan State Association of Parliamentarians (MSAP).


 MEMBERSHIP
Annual dues are $10 and membership is open to any NAP member or any person interested in the study of parliamentary procedure and preparing for NAP membership. Guests are welcome at meetings and are invited to learn about the unit and parliamentary procedure. KPLU has four types of members: primary, affiliate, provisional, and life.

MEETINGS
Held in February, May, September and November at the People's Church 1758 North 10th St.,, Kalamazoo, MI.
