• About the Certification Program

Become a Certified Tribal Parliamentarian (CTP)! This unique new certification program is perfect for anyone who has already taken Falmouth Institute’s Robert’s Rules of Order class and would like to demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills necessary to adopt or adapt standard parliamentary procedure for a tribal environment.

This program will help you move beyond the basics to a deeper understanding of how parliamentary procedure and the intricacies of meeting management can make your organization more productive and responsive. Regardless of the parliamentary procedure you are currently using, you’ll learn to master the terminology, employ effective meeting strategies and demonstrate superior facilitation skills. You’ll develop useful techniques for handling difficult and unruly meeting participants and learn how to effectively use your governing documents. And you’ll put it all to work in a mock meeting designed to give you practical experience with the application of parliamentary procedure.

Show your commitment to your organization and your community by going to the next level with a certification in Parliamentary Procedure!

Perfect for tribal chairpersons, board/council members, presidents, tribal administrators, principals, administrative professionals, and committee organizers and chairs.
