Are you a chapter officer? Get helpful tips and reminders here!

Chapter Presidents

In October, new chapter officers will begin the 2017-2018 term. As the current chapter president, it is your responsibility to ensure a smooth transition into next year. So, if your chapter officers will be changing, make sure the outgoing officers have given the necessary materials to the incoming officers. Ensure each officer has completed the required duties to close out the 2016-2017 year, so you will be ready to begin the new year in October.

Chapter Treasurers

It is recommended that your chapter president appoint at least two or three people to an audit committee to ensure the accuracy of the chapter’s financial records. To facilitate the audit process, each month’s bank reconciliation, statement, deposit slips, checks and paid bills should be attached to the monthly treasurer reports. The audit committee will use this information to prepare its report. A copy of the audit committee’s report should be retained in the treasurer’s files. For more information about the recommended audit procedures, please see page 19 of the Chapter Treasurer’s Handbook.

Chapter Membership Chairs

How can you help increase the possibility of all your chapter members renewing their memberships for the upcoming 2017-2018 year? For starters, be on the lookout for members who are not satisfied with their NAWIC membership. Once you know of someone who is not satisfied, communicate with the concerned member about her problem, and address it head on. Sometimes a member who is thinking of dropping her membership may make a comment about it when she is called. Experience shows about 20 percent of members who actually terminate their memberships will renew if someone will express genuine concern about their issues.
