Welcome

Chapter Governance Bylaws

This past March, delegates made the historic decision to transition the House of Delegates to an Advisory Group, amending the ASSP bylaws to effect the change. ASSP has updated all governing documents to reflect this change, including the model chapter bylaws. Per the chapter affiliation agreement, chapters are required to maintain bylaws that are aligned with the model chapter bylaws. Chapter members will need to vote to amend our chapter’s bylaws to bring them into alignment with these updates. Please watch your inbox for an email to review the redline copy of our chapter’s bylaws with the proposed amendments and an e-ballot to vote on these changes.

Guidance on Return to Face to Face

ASSP Chapters: Guidance on Return to Face-to-Face Programming COVID-19 has changed what we do and how we do it. This includes how our members and leaders approach chapter meetings and events. ASSP chapters connect members to valuable education, networking and leadership opportunities. We know leaders and members are eager to reconnect through face-to-face programming. At the same time, we all must remain vigilant about protecting the safety and health of members, leaders and attendees. To do so, we must continue to monitor the latest information about this public health issue and recognize how chapter activities may impact the Society’s reputation. While each chapter must exercise its own judgment, we continue to strongly counsel all chapters to align with the Society’s approach and hold off scheduling in-person meetings of members or leadership teams through August 31, 2021.
