Summer Parliamentary Study Group
July 23rd & July 30th – online.

“Do You Want to Be a Parliamentarian?”

The Chesapeake Unit of Parliamentarians (CUP) invites anyone interested in learning the basics of Robert’s Rules of Order to join us for a 2 session study group, on July 23rd & July 30th, ONLINE, from 10:00 am to noon.

The study sessions will be via Zoom and at the end of the training you will have the opportunity to complete the membership test to join the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). 

Two Saturday mornings:
July 23 and 30, 2022 — 10 A.M. to 12 Noon. Zoom Platform

Two-step registration process:

  1.  Register for the study group by sending CUP an email at 757cup@gmail.com
    The group is limited to 15 students, so, first come—first served.

CUP will provide the materials and the training to students, without charge – courtesy of a Grant from the Virginia State Association of Parliamentarians.
You will receive a copy of Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised In Brief, 3rd Edition, which will be the study guide for the NAP test at the end of the training – as well as a wonderful resource for you for future reference.

The deadline to register with NAP is July 15 – to give us time to send the book to you and to allow NAP to process your membership application and exam.

2. Apply for membership with the National Association of Parliamentarians at www.parliamentarians.org

Students complete the NAP application and submit the pro-rated annual dues for national membership (amount for July: adult $42, student $21) plus the annual amount for state membership (adult or student $15).

Students are invited to name the Chesapeake Unit as their intended home unit. Annual membership dues for CUP are adult $25, or for students or active military, $12.50, if you would like to become a member.

NAP will provide log-in information for testing directly to applicants.

Note: All credential tests for NAP are administered by Respondus Lock Down Browser.  Beginning August 1, 2022, a fee of $15 will apply to take the exam.

If you take the exam on the last day of our study group, July 30th, there is no $15 charge to take the exam. Click her to download the practice test questions: NAP Study Guide.
