Keeping Your IFT Student Chapter in Good Standing
All existing IFTSA Chapters (both currently active and dormant) have until June 1 each year to supply the following information to IFTSA through three different forms: Chapter Health Tools 1 & 2 and the Officer Report Form. The links to these forms will be shared with the Chapter President and Advisor via email.
The deadline for submitting a list of club officers is September 30.
Chapters that fail to meet the deadlines for consecutive years may be subject to chapter termination.
Upon termination, chapters must reapply for approval from both the IFTSA and IFT Boards before they can be recognized as an IFT Student Chapter.
IFTSA provides a roadmap for chapters to use in designing their operations for the year. The IFTSA Chapter Operations Manual can be found in the Chapter Officers Group in IFT Connect along with a host of other resources and tools.
Can’t find a resource? Contact your Board Liaison, the VP of Chapter Engagement, or Amy Clarke Sievers.
While not a requirement, we hope you will also submit to the Chapter of the Year program each year and tell us about the great things your chapter has done. Details and requirements can be found on the Chapter of the Year page.
Each year, IFTSA hosts the Chapter Leaders Workshop (CLW) at the IFT Annual Event. This is an opportunity for Chapter Leaders and incoming Area Meeting Chairs to come together for leadership development, to learn more about IFT and IFTSA, and to build community amongst the IFTSA Chapters.
The Chapter Leaders Workshop at IFT20 will be held on Sunday, July 12, 2020 from 8:00 am-12:00 noon (CDT). One student from each chapter will receive a travel stipend of $500 following their attendance at the event in Chicago, IL.
For more information, please contact Amy Clarke Sievers.
