A parliamentarian is a consultant who specializes in parliamentary procedure, also called parliamentary law. A parliamentarian knows Robert’s Rules of Order, and can advise on things like bylaws amendments and the recommended practices and contemporary practices for boards and committees of any membership-based organization, or even those philanthropic organizations which are run 100% by a board-of-directors and which have no general membership at all. The experienced parliamentarian will know how other nonprofit organization like yours have solved, or side-stepped, the most-common problems.
