Amendments: The What, the Why, and the How Presented by Dr. Helen Popovich, PRP

Amendments will take you through primary amendments, how to make and dispose of them. Henry Robert said amendments need to be thoroughly understood but this is perhaps the most difficult part of parliamentary law. You will learn how to make and handle all kinds of amendments.

Previous Question, The Most Misunderstood and Misused Motion Presented by NAP District 3 Director Lavon Moore, PRP

Explore previous question–the most misunderstood and misused motion in the book in a lighthearted but deeper dive into what makes this motion so tough. You will gain strategies to counteract everything that can go wrong with this motion.

Exploring the Standards for a Professional Parliamentarian Presented by Patricia MacDougal, PRP

Focus on defining professional responsibility in greater detail. Go beyond the basic principles and rules of parliamentary law in understanding the Code of Professional Responsibilities for Parliamentarians and the professional standards found in the NAP Body of Knowledge.
