2019 Council of Chapters - Chapter Activity Reports due

Each chapter must submit a Chapter Activity Report by Friday, January 18, to be eligible to receive a stipend to send representatives to the 2019 winter meeting.
Stipends in the amount of $500 will be issued to chapters to help offset travel expenses for a representative to attend the winter meeting. Should your chapter experience financial hardship in order to send a representative for the winter meeting, please contact Ashley Wilson at awilson@apwa.net or (816) 595-5232.

Registration deadline coming for Chapter Leaders Training workshop and Winter Council of Chapters’ meeting

The biennial Chapter Leaders Training, in conjunction with the Winter Council of Chapters meeting, is scheduled for January 31-February 1, 2019 in Kansas City.
The deadline for hotel reservations is January 9, 2019, in order to book at the special room rate of $159/night (plus applicable taxes and fees).
Use this link to go to the CLT page to find the registration information and a tentative agenda: www.apwa.net/clt.
This event brings chapter leaders − including presidents, presidents-elect, treasurers, membership committee chairs and others – to Kansas City where they can interact with their peers from all over North America.
This year this two-day workshop provides chapter leaders and Council of Chapters delegates the opportunity to understand how chapters and branches work with APWA National, the services and resources available to chapters from National, and provides an excellent opportunity to network with leaders and delegates from other chapters.
To help offset the cost, APWA provides stipends to the chapters:
  • Up to a $700 stipend to send two individuals ($350 per person) to the Chapter Leaders Training, and
  • $500 for delegates to attend the Council of Chapters meetings.
If a chapter would like to send more than two leaders to Chapter Leaders Training, there is a $200 registration fee for each person to cover food and beverage costs. Please contact APWA at ChapterSupport@apwa.net for additional information. 

Membership webcast scheduled

A Membership 101 webinar will be held at 2:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on Tuesday, January 22.
This webcast is presented each year in January, helping the new chapter and branch membership chairs navigate the Chapter Leader Resources area and helping them understand the membership-specific materials. It is also a great way for those who have been a membership chair to review some of the materials and learn about any new processes.
Those attending the webinar will learn how to find and make use of the various membership reports and hear of Best Practices from other chapters. Participants will also be able to ask questions through the one-hour program.
For more information, contact Brad Patterson at bpatterson@apwa.net or 816-595-5263 or to register, contact Rhonda Wilhite at rwilhite@apwa.net or 800-848-2792 (ex. 5261).
