Over the holiday break we will be taking advantage of the slow site traffic to make some minor updates to both of these websites. ¬†We will be changing the ‚ÄúMembership‚ÄĚ page to ‚ÄúChapter Management‚ÄĚ in order to consolidate a couple of pages and house all things chapter management related. This will include the Quality Chapter Plan/Report, membership tutorials, constitutions, etc. and the certification exam platform will be updated with some really cool, new features.  We will be sending information out about this after the beginning of the year.
