Iam working on a comittee on by laws and the current by laws says the president is also the parlimentarian,,,,this just doesnt seen right to me

RONR does suggest that smaller organizations should probably not require the services of a parliamentarian, but in circumstances where it might be helpful or needed, the section that addresses this would lead one to think it should be someone other than the president, since the parliamentarian's primary function is to advise the president. With any luck, your president would be well versed in parliamentary matters and procedures, as well as the bylaws, so you would hope he would take care of things properly anyway.

That said, RONR contains no rule that prevents the president from also being the parliamentarian. If that "just doesn't seem right" to you, you are entitled to that opinion.
