About Us

Welcome to the informational parliamentary website hosted by the nonprofit M. Stanley Ryan Unit.  This organization consists of parliamentarians in the heart of Richmond, Virginia, USA.  Our mission is to serve the public by developing their skills in conducting well run, efficient business meetings based on Robert’s Rules of Order.

There are three Richmond, Virginia, parliamentary groups under the umbrella of the Virginia State Association of Parliamentarians (VSAP) and the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP).

The M. Stanley Ryan Unit, the Virginia Dalton and Eloise Engeldove Unit, and the Parliamentary Law Club welcome you to visit our meetings and special events to learn more about parliamentary procedure and the universally acknowledged “gold standard” for meeting rules, “Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised”.
