  • Parliamentarian John Stackpole Named Honorary APTA Member

    John Stackpole, PhD, PRP, CPP, became an honorary APTA member on June 26 by a unanimous vote. Stackpole was parliamentarian to the House of Delegates from 1994 to 2011, offering guidance from the dais based on his knowledge of parliamentary procedure. He helped 4 different speakers of the House keep order during the annual proceedings—no small feat. [RC 30-13]

    Draft language adopted by the 2013 House of Delegates will be available on the House Community no later than July 12. Final language for all actions taken by the June 2013 House will be available by September after the minutes have been approved.

    • Dr. Stackpole is a most worthy recipient of this honor. As a former delegate, I recall his poise, dedication to our proceedings, and his apparent understanding of our profession. I wish him well in the years to come.
