2014 Accord Materials

November 3, 2013

As the 2013 chapter president, this is your opportunity to showcase the chapter. We strongly recommend that you engage your board in the work of completing the required reports. While this report is ultimately your responsibility, working with the members of your board will give them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the process and will assist you in ensuring that none of the year's accomplishments are forgotten. This is a great time for the board to assess the past year's activities and plan for an even more successful 2014!

2014 Accord Orientation - Dec. 4, 2013, 2 p.m. ET

PowerPoint | Webinar

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. To highlight the importance of this process, the AFP Board of Directors will review all chapters not In Accord at the March, July and October board meetings and take appropriate action designed to protect all chapters from the loss of these important chapter benefits. As you will note from the attached Board of Directors policy, 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. These measures can all be avoided by submitting your chapter's Accord materials to IHQ by the Jan. 15, 2014 deadline. If you wish to compete for the Ten Star Award, to be awarded at the 2015 International Conference in Baltimore, MD, both the Dec. 16, 2013 and Jan. 15, 2014 deadlines mentioned above must be met.
