Serving as National Parliamentarian: Out of the Classroom and into the Convention Hall.
Sylvester, Nancy
The responsibilities of serving as a certified, national parliamentarian are both time-consuming and rewarding, and include three areas: national conventions, board meetings, and being "on call." Careful organization of all pertinent documents and preparation are essential to success for the convention parliamentarian, who also serves as support for the organization's president. Sitting in on organizational board meetings mainly involves ensuring that the board follows proper procedures, while being "on call" involves preparing materials for meetings, giving advice, and solving unexpected problems. All three areas provide challenges, as does establishing a fee structure. However, although it requires a great deal of time and energy, this second profession can prove to be a lucrative and interesting addition to the speech professional. (DF)
