Professional Chapter Leaders: This article contains important information for you. There is a "Chapter Affirmation Form” that you must complete by 2/28/2012. Details are below.
Chapter Affirmation Form
The Chapter Affirmation Form found at http://www.aitp.org/?ChapterAffirm should be completed by the 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 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:
Group Admin Options Change Homepage Layout Resource Manager.
If you do not see that bar, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be added.
For January 2012, chapters that had completed their forms in 2011 will receive their rebate.
Deadline for the completion of the Chapter Affirmations for the rebates to continue in 2012 is February 28.
