Manitoba Association of Parliamentarians is a volunteer non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage the study and use of parliamentary procedure.  Learning these procedures will help you to improve  your meetings, and M-A-P is here to help!

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.

Our parliamentary authority is the current edition of Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR).*  It is the parliamentary authority we recommend.  *The current edition is now the 12th edition .

*This is the standard abbreviation parliamentarians use to cite Henry M. Robert III and others, Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised, 12th ed. (New York: PublicAffairs, 2020). 

What are MAP’s  goals and objectives?
