History

At the December 12, 2011 meeting of the Electronic Network of Advancing Parliamentarians, the Society adopted bylaw amendments to create a transition to become an NAP unit under a new governance structure which allows for electronic units.  Our application for charter was submitted and approved on December 20, 2011.

eNAP held its first organizational meeting on April 27, 2009 in the Slashnet.org IRC channel #enap at 6:00 PM Pacific time with Ann Guiberson, Anne Jollimore, Donna Williams, Heather MacKenzie, Lionel Guerard, Paul Lamb and Paul McClintock attending.  While the group initially was conceived to be an electronic unit of the National Association of Parliamentarians, the NAP bylaws committee chairman said that an electronic unit was not possible under the then-NAP bylaws.  Thus eNAP organized as an independent Society on May 18, 2009.

At the April 13, 2020 meeting of the Electronic Unit, the unit changed its name to the eNAP Unit in order to avoid confusion with the other electronic units that were founded after its chartering.
