How to Join HSAP

The Hawaiʻi State Asssociation of Parliamentarians (HSAP) is the State Affiliate of the Natioanl Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). Membership in HSAP is automatic when you Join NAP. Follow the instructions & Guidance at How To Apply on the NAP website.

Regular Membership in NAP and HSAP is not to be represented as or confused with a credential. Nor does passing the membership quiz "certify" the member as a parliamentarian.

As described on the NAP website:

At the primary level of NAP membership, regular members receive all of the standard benefits of NAP membership after demonstrating basic knowledge of parliamentary principles by completing a diagnostic quiz related to parliamentary procedure. Regular membership demonstrates a commitment to learning and practicing fair and effective democratic processes, and allows members to participate more fully in the activities of the National Association of Parliamentarians®. Regular members help introduce provisional members to parliamentary concepts; serve their local and state/province organizations in leadership roles; and can serve as a delegate to state/province and national conventions.
