Complete Your Chapter Self-Assessment and Chapter Services Assessment


By the end of November, chapter presidents will be emailed a copy of the 2011 Chapter Self-Assessment. We ask each chapter to complete this self-assessment annually to:

·         Confirm key information vital for tracking chapter compliance and performance
·         Get a personal perspective from the chapter on its performance and learn more about its practices
·         Determine whether any changes have been made to the chapter board, bylaws or multiyear plan

A completed assessment, along with copies of updated documents, will keep your records with ACHE current. This assessment must be completed and received by Dec. 15, 2011. Otherwise, your chapter will be ineligible for a 2012 Chapter Management Award.

Also, by the end of November, chapter presidents will receive a mailing that includes the Chapter Services Assessment from ACHE President/CEO Thomas C. Dolan, PhD, FACHE, CAE. This annual assessment provides the chapters with the opportunity to gauge how well the Division of Regional Services is serving our chapter leaders. A return envelope will be enclosed in this mailing, which will allow you to send the assessment directly to Dr. Dolan.

Thank you for your attention to both items. Your prompt reply is truly appreciated.
