We would like to invite you to join our parliamentary training on November 14th, 2020 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.

Let's learn about motions, seconds, amendments, and many more about the parliamentary law and procedures together from Mark Apodaca, MBA, PRP!

Please email Damon at to register and to request special accommodations. The deadline is November 4th for accommodation requests. 

To learn more about Mark Apodaca and what he will be training us on, here is a vlog provided by Mark:

Transcript of the vlog: Hello, my name is Mark Apodaca Normally, when I provide training, comprehensive training, it can take between 3 to 5 hours. Not 35 hours, 3 to 5 hours. The job as a Parliamentarian is spending hours after hours of studying and preparing, research, and discussions with other Parliamentarians on different topics. It is a serious profession. My role as a parliamentarian consists of many responsibilities. I will pick a few that I typically would be doing. First and foremost responsibility is to provide advice to presidents during meetings on parliamentary procedures and how to handle such situations. Secondly, me, as a Parliamentarian, I must remain neutral. I cannot support or oppose discussions. Thirdly, I cannot debate on any topic of discussion. Next, I make sure that the parliamentary procedures are being followed. Hopefully with that we have a smooth and stable meeting done in an orderly fashion. So, those are some of my responsibilities. I will be there in your training and I look forward to working with you all.
