I was going through some electronic files I have on my computer
(miscellaneous items I received from various people when I first started),
and I came across the attached document.  It is the Chapter Regulations for
ARCE.  I am assuming this had been saved to use as a reference for setting
up our own Chapter Regulations...and I know we wanted to have more defined
rules/regulations for local chapters.


Some of the stuff in here would not apply for our local chapters, but I
think a lot of it would be useful for us to use.  We could use this as a
template, and create our own Regulations.  I'm not sure if this is more
formal than everyone had in mind, but it could work.  Some of the things I
thought may be useful for us to incorporate are the following:



Review, sign and return a copy of these Regulations, which will formally
govern the chapter's

relationship with ARCE. By signing these Regulations, you agree that the
chapter officers and

directors will obey the rules and regulations of ARCE as well as these
chapter Regulations.


Upon receipt of the signed Regulations, the candidate chapter will be sent a
$200 Starter Fund to

help attract new members. As of Fiscal Year 2003 (July 1, 2002) the Starter
Fund is $500. 


The candidate chapter will have one year to attract a minimum total
enrollment of 35 paid

members. When the chapter reaches full status, it is eligible for
reimbursement of expenses up to

$1,000.00 for its first fiscal year of operation and up to $2,000.00 for
subsequent years.


Local chapters are required to annually elect a Board of Directors
consisting of at least 3

directors. In addition, local chapters are required to annually elect or
appoint chapter

officers consisting of at least a president, treasurer and a
secretary/clerk, with optional

officers being responsible for programs, publications, publicity and liaison
with sister



All chapter officers and directors must be dues-paying members of ARCE.


Local chapters are not permitted to incur long-term financial debts,
obligations, or liabilities

either in their own name or that of the national organization. No local
chapter officer is

authorized to arrange, contract, or enter into any financial agreement that
would have the

effect of imposing an inappropriate financial obligation on the local
chapter or national




Let me know what you guys think.  We could save this for our next
teleconference to go over if everyone is too busy to look this over in depth
