Please review your chapter roster. If your roster is not up to date, please send your updates to Kim Rundle at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, please send me any updates so I can add or remove individuals to the Chapter Council Listserv.
Executive Board Chapter Visits
It's not too late to request a board member visit to your chapter, if you have not already done so. Every three years, your chapter is entitled to a visit by the President, Vice-President/President-Elect or Immediate Past President. To see if it's your chapter's eligible, go to http://www.aallnet.org/chapter/rotation_schedule_05_06.pdf. More information about chapter visits can be found on AALLNet at http://www.aallnet.org/chapter/chapter_visit_policy.asp, including "Top 10 Reasons Why Your Chapter Should Request a AALL Chapter Visitor" and "Q: What's Half as Much Hassle as You Think and Twice as Rewarding? A: A Chapter Board Visit."
