Dr. Douglas Goetz Candidate Bio

Name: Dr. Douglas N. Goetz

Position Sought: VP Parliamentarian

NPMA Certification: CPPM, CF

Chapter Affiliation: Ohio Valley Chapter

Length of NPMA Membership: 35 Years

Current Job Title: President, GP Consultants LLC


I am currently, and have served as an NPMA Instructor since 1986, doing numerous classes for the NPMA including the ever popular NYC class. I plan to continue doing classes if elected and allowed to by the NPMA.


Statement of Experience:

    Having been a member for over 30 years I have witnessed our Association grow and adapt to those changing times and professional needs. Having this historical knowledge enables me to provide input as to future directions. My ability to work with complex regulations helped enormously with the challenge of rewriting the NPMA Bylaws during the past year in office. As an academic steeped in research, the ability to work with Robert’s Rules of Order is critical. But, it is not just knowing the rules – rather it is ability to apply them maintaining consistency and order to our association’s operations.

Mission and Goals:

    There is no doubt that the Parliamentarian’s responsibility is to ensure that we “Follow the rules.” Having successfully rewritten the National Bylaws, my current challenge is to rewrite the NPMA Operations Manual, another daunting challenge, with our VP of Administration. Regional Board Meetings, Executive Board Meetings, and the National Board Meeting all present their own challenges to ensure the actions taken are properly handled and processed – that is my goal, and should be the goal of whomever is elected. I have served our association with a passion and will continue to do so if elected.
