Requirements for GOLD Chapter Status

In addition to completing the Chapter Progress and Performance (CPP) Report by March 15, each chapter must have documented results for the following:

  • Hold at least four meetings – physical or virtual (provide approximate dates)
  • Contact members at least once per month (to be provided to HQ only upon request)
  • Student to Professional Conversions
    • University – graduate at least two new YP members
    • Professional – recruit at least two new YP members
  • Identify at least two members who have agreed to serve as a chapter leader / officer during the next year. Please provide their names and email addresses.

NOTE: Since the new minimum requirements were released in January 2020, we realize each chapter has had limited time to ensure each one is met. Therefore, by simply addressing each of these in your report, and explaining what you actually did and how you plan to accomplish these in the future, the minimum requirement will be met.
