Important Update on Chapter Membership Model: We've set up a special page (see tab to the left of the page) for the new universal Chapter Membership Model where you can find the revised ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ (FAQ) document that addresses most questions related to the model. The revised FAQ will remain posted on the Chapter Membership Model page throughout 2013. We've also added a Chapter Membership Model powerpoint presentation for you to use at your meetings. As we move forward with the transition, which is expected to be completed by July 1, 2013, we will keep the chapter leaders posted on all major developments. All chapters should have stopped collecting chapter dues on May 1, 2013. Thank you.
