Detroit Unit

Welcome to the website of the Detroit Unit of the National Association of Parliamentarians. Located in Detroit, our mission is to provide education and leadership growth to the residents of the greater Detroit metropolitan area.


Detroit Unit members have a wide variety of interests and experiences, from members who are just beginning their study of parliamentary procedure to professional parliamentarians who have worked with a number of for-profit and non-profit organizations.


We encourage anyone who would like to learn more about holding effective meetings, serving as an officer of an organization, improving an organization's bylaws, running elections, or other topics to join us at one of our monthly study sessions and to meet our members.
