Let's gather in the beginning of 2017 to make more concrete plans for our revived NAME Illinois chapter! 10 people said this date/time worked...so let's plan on it. I will confirm location nearer (either Harold Washington Library, or maybe UIC this time for easier parking).
I will share what I learned at the 2016 National Conference in Cleveland. I also met about a dozen people from Chicago who are interested in joining us...I'd like to invite them to join us, if that's ok with you. Please be in touch with me if you have concerns about widening our circle of founding members.
If you want to be one of the founding members, officially with NAME, please be sure your Membership is up to date, and that you've chosen our chapter from the dropdown menu (NAME-Illinois (chapter organizing 2016), NOT: llinois - inactive), and select your role: Board Member (Angela, Marsha, Pam, Stan, Sabrina & Cathy), or
Secretary (Giselle & Miguel), and Vice President (Carolyn). We could have 2 more Secretaries (as both of our current volunteers will miss the January meeting). Please be in touch if you're interested in sharing that role.
1) Log into your account on the www.nameorg.org website.
2) Change your status under "State Chapter Officer" to either:
3) Then make sure your Chapter is selected as: NAME-Illinois (chapter organizing 2016),
4) Be sure your National Status box is checked.
