Chapter Council

Chapter Council

The ASM Chapter Council is responsible for Chapter policy and governance issues, reviewing the quality level of Chapters, acting as primary liaison between Chapters and Materials Park, and reviewing funding proposals.

The ASM Chapter Council is comprised of 16 members. Appointments are made for a term of not more than three years, except for the chair who is appointed for one year.

To provide a rotating membership, approximately one-third of the council's members are appointed each year. Reappointments may be made when desirable. The size of the Chapter Council is determined from time to time by the ASM Board of Trustees.

The Chapter Council meets at least once each year and as frequently as necessary. The Council may be assigned additional duties at the discretion of the ASM Board. The council issues minutes of each of its meetings and the chair is responsible for submitting an annual report and ensuring alignment with the ASM Strategic Plan.

As a key group of leaders within ASM, Chapter Council members are expected to:

  • Actively participate in all Council meetings

  • Serve as a liaison for their assigned Regional District

  • Provide input and participate in determining Chapter governance

  • Actively work to improve Council operation

  • Actively support the ASM Strategic Plan

  • Work to achieve annual Chapter Council objectives

  • Provide input and determine issues of Chapter dissolution and rejuvenation

  • Assist with annual Chapter Leadership Days program

  • Communicate Council activities to Chapters and their leadership
