Chapter Chat Report

Last night we had our first chapter chat. It was quite lively and most enjoyable with the 13 -14 leaders who attended. There was quite a discussion about how chapters get funding to pay for things such as CART, meeting rooms, newsletter publishing and other expenses. There was discussion about the new Chapter/National dues program available presently to new chapters.

Cathy from Ohio asked the question "Why should they join a national organization that they will have little to do with." That is a great question and I am afraid that question was not fully discussed so I will be sure to bring this up first thing during our next chat.

The plan is to rotate the chats to different days of the week. The next chapter chat will be on Tuesday, August 18th. Remember anybody is welcome and the more the merrier. I will be sending out a reminder notice a day or two before the meeting.

The transcript from the chat is available for download HERE.


Very truly yours,

Toni
