In 1995, the Board of Directors determined that all chapters should be in full compliance with the bylaws provision that "all members of local chapters must be members of the international Association." To assist chapters in maintaining full compliance, rosters are available at any time using the Chapter Search Tool.
On an annual basis, rosters provided by ALA Headquarters and return the necessary documents attesting to the chapter's compliance. This process is initiated by ALA Headquarters staff each year, usually in May. Every chapter is required to provide certification of full compliance.
Chapter Profile Form
Incoming chapter presidents will receive a profile form from ALA Headquarters shortly after they assume office. This form should be reviewed, updated and returned within 45 days of receipt. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
