Parliamentarian

Can the Parliamentarian take place in any discussion of a motion or make motion at an Annual General Meeting of a non profit group? We have only just decided to start using Roberts Rules for our meeting and some people say that the Parliamentarian can do this.

Agreeing with the comment above by Mr. Katz, the assembly may also suspend the rules to permit the member parliamentarian to participate in the meeting to the same degree as the other members or to whatever degree it deems advisable. It may, for example, suspend the rules to permit the parliamentarian to vote but not to speak in debate  or to make motions.

My own local unit of NAP has adopted a Special Rule of Order permitting the parliamentarian to participate the same as other members.
