Board of Directors

Evan Lemoine, PRP

Evan A. Lemoine, PRP
Co-Founder & President ● president@yp-3.org

In September 2015, Evan envisioned the idea of an association of young parliamentarians with Kendra O’Toole and Ron Herbison. Their initial visions led to the formation of YP3 and the election of Evan as its first president.

Evan is a certified public accountant and certified fraud examiner in Rhode Island serving non-profit organizations, businesses and individuals across New England. He is the past treasurer of the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP) and served as chairman of numerous finance-related board committees and as a member of the youth committee. He is a past youth intern and past NAP Educational Foundation scholar.

Evan is a professional registered parliamentarian and has extensive experience working with youth-based organizations and student governments.  Under Evan’s leadership, he organized the New England Association of Parliamentarians in July 2013. As a serial entrepreneur, Evan has started numerous businesses, starting his first—a website development firm—at age 13. His background as an accounting professional, entrepreneur, and his connections with numerous professional parliamentarians as a former board member of NAP uniquely qualify him to lead and grow YP3.
