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 book becomes the group’s parliamentary authority.

Our parliamentary authority is Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised.  It is the most widely used parliamentary authority in North America.  *The current edition of RONR is the 12th edition .

*RONR 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?
Mentor our members so they learn more about Robert’s Rules;
Coach members so they can improve their own presiding skills;
Facilitate monthly study groups for members and guests;
Assist our members to acquire their parliamentary credentials;
