Arizona Agua Fria Unit
All local organizations are referred to as "units", and typically associated with a state association and the national association. Each chapter sets its own meeting time, elects its own officers, and typically conducts a variety of educational activities to help people learn about parliamentary processes.
Arizona State Association of Parliamentarians
ASAP is the Arizona state organization under which the Arizona Agua Fria Unit operates. ASAP is part of District 8 of the NAP.
National Association of Parliamentarians
There are a number of national and international organizations who focus on parliamentary procedures, but the NAP is focused solely on Robert's Rules of Order (yes, there are other parliamentary guides!).
Here are the current officers of the Arizona Agua Fria Unit.
The President presides over the meetings, which use Robert's Rules of Order. The meetings themselves provide an opportunity to participate and learn.
The Vice President presides in the President's absence, but is also in charge of providing the educational program held at each meeting. More learning!

We have our own Parliamentarian to help guide us and provide additional live training opportunities during each meeting.
Need to learn about parliamentary procedures?
We meet as a group most months in Surprise, AZ. Plans are in the works for electronic/online meetings at a variety of days and time.
There is a mailing list with a variety of subscription options -- all free!
And we're developing some continuing education opportunities if your organization requires you to know about parliamentary process.
See what we have to offer, and tell us what you need!
