Can a president be also the parliamentarian?
In our organization the newly elected President was the Parlimentarian. Can he be both the President and the Parlimentarian at the same time.
It is very good that your newly elected President has such a good back ground in parliamentary procedure, but the office of parliamentarian should be filled by someone else. Hopefully you have others who are well versed in this subject, too. An important rule to remember is: the President makes the rulings whether or not the parliamentarian agrees. It is the members that can always appeal a President's ruling by the motion "To Appeal from the Decision of the Chair."
