About the National Association of Parliamentarians

NAP LogoThe National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP) is a dynamic, growing organization concerned with the practical problems parliamentarians face today. NAP is the oldest and largest professional non-profit association of parliamentarians in the world. NAP's primary objectives are teaching, promoting, and disseminating the philosophy and principles underlying the rules of deliberative assemblies. 

The goals of NAP are to:

  • encourage its members and the general public to learn the principles and practice of democratic decision-making;
  • help teachers instruct people of all ages—from public and private school students to active professionals to retirees involved in their communities— in parliamentary procedure at all levels;
  • promote collaboration and professional development among parliamentarians; and
  • provide widely recognized, authoritative accreditation of parliamentarians serving the general public.

Organized in 1930, NAP is recognized as the premier professional non-profit association of parliamentarians. Today, NAP has a membership of nearly 4,000 parliamentarians throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad. Among NAP's members are hundreds ofProfessional Registered Parliamentarians, accredited as meeting the highest level of proficiency in the practice of parliamentary procedure.

NAP also works in a partnership with several youth organizations to develop and enhance educational programs that prepare participants for a future as leaders.
