About Us

In the Minnesota Association of Parliamentarians (MSAP), we study and practice Robert's Rules of Order with the goals of bringing order, fairness, and civility to organizations. A primary way to become acquainted with and understand how to implement efficient organizational meeting procedures is to attend one of the unit meetings.

An excellent way to learn parliamentary procedure is to join a local unit. There are two local units in Minnesota:

Northern Lights Parliamentarians

  • An educational session is presented at each meeting.

  • Time:  6:30pm gavel down, 8:00pm adjourn
