Chapter Affirmation Form
Affirmation Form found at http://www.aitp.org/?ChapterAffirm should be completed by chapter leaders
of each professional chapter in order for the chapter to receive a $5
per member dues rebate from the Association. This must be done annually.
Affirmation form asks for you to affirm that AITP has current leaders
identified for your professional chapter and for your sponsored student
chapters. That will help us ensure that AITP communicates with the correct
chapter leaders. It also ensures that the correct leaders in your chapter

blogs, etc. The form also asks for you to affirm that your

Each leader is shown with a code number for the chapter position and the
person's name. For example, 010-President John Smith.
If your chapter does not display that list of chapter leaders on their landing
page, please contact AITP at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm we have the correct list of leaders on file.
Please affirm the list of leaders on the landing page for each one of
your student chapters as well.
If the list of chapter leaders on a landing page is not current, please contact email@example.com and provide us each leader's name and position (we will
fill in the code number). Be sure to identify the chapter you are updating.
Chapter leaders will
know that AITP has identified them as chapter leaders if when they go
to their chapter page, they see a red bar near to top that says:
