Professional Chapter Affirmation Forms Due by 1/31/2014

Professional Chapter Leaders: This article contains important information for you. There is a "Chapter Affirmation Form” that you must complete by 1/31/2014 to receive the $5 additional rebate for January. Details are below.

Chapter Affirmation Form

The Chapter Affirmation Form found at 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.

The Chapter 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 (and in your student chapters) can get a file of member information, send broadcast emails to their members, set up chapter events and blogs, etc. The form also asks for you to affirm that your professional chapter is still active and holding regular meetings for its members.

For most chapters, the leaders are displayed in a list on their landing page. 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 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 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:
Group Admin Options         Change Homepage Layout           Resource Manager.
If you do not see that bar, please contact to be added.

Updating Chapter Leaders
To provide updates for Chapter leaders, please send via email either by attachment or in the body of the text, to (Subject: Chapter Leader Update),

  1. The Leader/faculty advisor name.
  2. Leader/faculty advisor position.
  3. Leader/faculty advisor member number (if known).

Release of Chapter Incentive

Chapters that remit the required information in the chapter incentive affirmation will be eligible to receive the $5 rebate. Chapters will start receiving the $5 incentive for all new and renewing members for the year starting with the rebates for the month that the chapter incentive affirmation is submitted.

  • Example: Your Chapter remits the required information (by completing steps outlined herein) by January 31. Your $5 incentives for each new and renewing member from January will be included beginning with your January rebate ACH sent in February.
  • Example: Your chapter remits the required information (by completing the steps outlined here) after January 31. Your $5 incentive for each new and renewing member will begin in the month the form is completed.
