Call for Chapters to Host Annual Meetings

Call for Chapters to Host Annual Meetings

November 17, 2010

Good morning Chapter Presidents!

As we look forward to the upcoming NCD Annual Meeting to be held in Winston-Salem,North Carolina on June 10-12, 2011, we must also look forward to selecting a site for the 2012 Annual Meeting.

Please review the attachment, which gives established guidelines for determining sites for
the North Carolina Annual Meeting. It also lists past sites, dates and hosts. In the past, a pre-set rotation schedule was followed. However, we have added many new chapters since that schedule was established so hosting opportunities are now open to any chapter(s) wishing to bid. Article VII, Section 2, of the NCD Bylaws states, “The Division Annual Meeting may be hosted by a single chapter, a group of chapters, or the North Carolina Division Board.”

Please share this information with your chapter members and seriously consider hosting or co-hosting a future Annual Meeting. Hosting an Annual Meeting can be a wonderful way to utilize or develop your meeting and planning skills, and to bond with other members as you form a cohesive team. A well-planned meeting can generate substantial proceeds for your chapter’s treasurer, with any proceeds being shared with the Division in a 60/40 split. During the decision making process, you will find the Division Board of Directors to be a good resource for any help you need.

Please respond to Division President, Shirley S. Kiziah, CPS/CAP no later than March 31, 2011, if your chapter is interested in hosting the 2012 Annual Meeting so the current Board of Directors can make the necessary plans for the future. If you have any questions about this procedure, please do not hesitate to contact President Kiziah at
