The Manitoba Association of Parliamentarians (known as: M-A-P) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage the study and use of parliamentary procedure.  Learning these procedures will help you to improve the productivity of your meetings.


A parliamentarian is one who is knowledgeable about parliamentary procedure and the rules of order . Once these rules are adopted, this becomes the group’s parliamentary authority.


MAP’s  parliamentary authority, the one we highly recommend, is the current edition of Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR).*


*”RONR” is the standard abbreviation parliamentarians use to cite Henry M. Robert III and others, Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised, 11th ed. (Da Capo Press, 2011).


What exactly does MAP do?
We encourage the study and use of parliamentary procedure.  As such, we hold educational sessions to teach the correct use of rules of order during a meeting.  MAP offers 2  public workshops each year.  We also hold free monthly study groups for our members and guests. MAP can also help you to locate parliamentary resources and provide details on how to register for training conferences with National Association of Parliamentarians .


Membership has many benefits (Annual Dues:$25.00).  For further info on becoming a member, contact:  info@parliamentarians-mb.ca
