Is your chapter's incorporated status in good standing?
All of GCSAA's affiliated chapters are required to keep their incorporated status in good standing with their states. Do you know how to check on this status? Go to your secretary of state's website and look for a link to business services. Generally, there will be a way to do a business look-up. Search by your chapter's name or employer identification number. If the status is not active, please be sure to have it reinstated. Contact Leann Cooper, chapter services manager, for questions or assistance.
