The Electronic Association of Parliamentarians (EAP) is a constituent division of the National Association of Parliamentarians. Organized in August 2017, the association will be chartered in September 2017 at the NAP Biennial Convention.
EAP was organized after three electronic NAP units were formed and by a joint resolution from the Electronic Unit inviting the E-Grant and YP3U was adopted to explore formation. The Green Gavel Unit was subsequently invited.
Our association is a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity organized exclusively for educational purposes of studying, teaching, promoting and disseminating the philosophy and principles underlying the rules of deliberative assemblies. The association promotes the object and educational programs of NAP and serves as a home for electronic units of NAP which choose not to affiliate with a geographically based association.
As an electronic-based association, all business is conducted through electronic means as directed by the board of directors and membership.
Membership in the association is limited to members of the <a href="http://www.parliamentarians.org">National Association of Parliamentarians</a>. Upon submitting your application, the board of directors will verify and approve your membership.
Dues for the association are $12.00 and are pro-rated monthly from your date of admission. Primary members will pay dues as part of their NAP membership renewal. Affiliate members will receive their dues notice from the EAP Treasurer. Full-time students are eligible for a 50% reduction of this fee. Please <a href="https://www.eparliamentarians.org/about/standing-rules/">refer to our rules</a> for the current dues schedule.
If you've submitted dues but have not created a member profile, you must also complete this application to be deemed a member. For those who submit an application and haven't submitted dues, you will receive an e-mail with payment instructions.
As the first electronic association of parliamentarians, there are many opportunities for involvement.
Who Can Join?
There are two classes of membership offered in EAP available to NAP members.
