PRP, here I come

I've been waiting a year for the opportunity, but I've finally signed up for the National Association of Parliamentarians' Professional Qualification Course. The course itself will be held after the NAP's National Training Conference, on Labor Day weekend (1-3 September), in Oak Brook, IL (near Chicago). The course is $200, on top of $150 for the conference and four nights at the Doubletree Hotel.

Completing this course will, however, lay to rest any further objections about my parliamentary competence. Upon completion, I'll be a Professional Registered Parliamentarian.

There are more certifications to earn from the American Institute of Parliamentarians, but I'll work on those once I get the PRP out of the way. This is in part because I think the education involved in the RP and PRP certifications will count toward AIP's CP and CPP, but also because, despite repeated requests, I've never received the information from AIP on just what the requirements are and how I can fulfill them. I'm not particularly impressed with AIP's member service record.
