How To Be A Chapter Rep

Chapter Representatives (Council of Chapters Members) are the "information highway" between their Chapters' membership, other FNPS Chapters, and the FNPS state-wide organization.  Chapter Representatives elevate local successes and concerns to the Society level, disseminate FNPS news and Council discussions to improve their Chapter's effectiveness, and collaborate to advance the mission of the Society.

Sound daunting?  It's not - it just takes some preparation and the ability to communicate!  Ask your Chapter's outgoing Chapter Representative to help you go through the checklist topics.

If you have not already received a "Welcome Letter" make sure you request one so you can obtain the logins you will need to access some of the communications tools.
