The Point Of Order Parliamentary Law Unit is a local study group of the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). This West Seattle unit consists of members with a variety of interests and experience.
Would you like to learn more about holding effective meetings, serving as an officer, improving your group's bylaws, running elections, or other areas of parliamentary procedure? If so, visit us at one of our meetings and consider joining our group.
The Point Of Order Unit has prepared, as a community service, a simple one-page Meeting Procedures Reference Sheet based on the current edition of Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised. To obtain a copy of the reference sheet by e-mail, please e-mail your request.
