2016 Accord Materials
October 29, 2015
Rationale for Accord
In addition to reviewing the activities of all chapters and enabling AFP to assess the services we currently provide, the Accord process is vital to maintaining AFP's ability to offer all U.S. chapters 501(c)(3) status and provide Directors' and Officers' liability insurance and General liability insurance to all chapters. AFP Board of Directors will review all chapters not In Accord at the March, July and October board meetings. Chapters not In Accord by March will lose voting privileges; by July, the chapter's dues revenue will be suspended until the chapter is In Accord; by October, the Board may vote to revoke a chapter's charter.
If you wish to compete for the Ten Star Award, to be awarded at the 2016 International Conference, both the Dec. 15, 2014 and Jan. 15, 2015 deadlines must be met.
We thank you and your chapter board for your continued service to AFP and to the profession. If you have any questions or require any assistance, please contact Chapter.Accord@afpnet.org.
