Chapter FAQs

How can I get my chapter membership roster?

The chapter roster, summary activity, and demographic data are available for download via FTP from the IISE website. The roster is a comma-delimited, ASCII text file, which can be downloaded and saved in Excel, Access, or similar software. Contact the IISE membership administrator for more information.

I’m a new president or faculty advisor, what do I need to do to receive the same information my predecessor used to get?

Once there has been a change in office, update the chapter record by submitting a current list of officers using the university chapter officer slate form or the  professional chapter officer slate form.  .

How can we get mailing labels for our chapter?

Chapters that require mailing labels on a regular basis are asked to arrange for FTP access to download their roster and create their own mailing labels. For occasional special requests, IISE can provide mailing labels at a cost of $15 per set plus the cost of postage. Contact the IISE membership administrator to make your request.

What's the schedule for distributing chapter dues rebate checks?

Dues checks are sent out three times per year for professional chapters and twice per year for university chapters, as follows:

  • Jan. 30 (professional and university chapters)
  • May 30 (professional chapters only)
  • Sept. 30 (professional and university chapters)

What do we need to do to receive our checks?

All green and yellow chapters are eligible to receive chapter checks and will receive them automatically at the regular distribution times. Red chapters are not eligible to receive dues checks. Eligibility requirements: University Chapters | Professional Chapters

If our chapter is red, what happens to the funds?

The chapter dues rebate funds are held in account for one pay period. If the chapter regains Green or Yellow status, the held funds are released with the first regular check distribution after the chapter achieves eligibility. All funds held for more than one period are forfeited by the chapter.

How do we know what our eligibility status (red/yellow/green) is?

Visit the chapter management center to view the chapter health status report. The report is updated quarterly.

How do I save/e-mail the Excel documents on the chapter website?

Right-click the CAR form link (that says it’s an Excel file) to save it on your local computer.

What's an RVP?

Region vice presidents are part of the Regional Operations Board or International Council. Region vice presidents serve three-year terms and represent the needs of the members in their region by supporting chapters and regional communi­ties. Region vice presidents report directly to the senior vice president of regional operations. RVPs are elected by the membership of their region and serve a three-year term on the Regional Operations Board  (U.S./Canada) or International Council (International Chapters), making decisions and establishing policies that govern chapters.
