Chapter Website Support and Updates
Website support was one of the top rated needs in the Chapter Needs survey done a few years back. Thanks to a vote from Chapter Council, funds were allocated to provide support to chapter webmasters and the hosting of chapter websites. Thanks also goes to the Fleming bequest for making this possible. Please take a moment to complete this short Chapter Website Support survey to help us know more about how we can support your chapter websites.
