Chapter Leadership Toolkits

Welcome to your Chapter Leader Toolkits! These toolkits contain a wealth of resources, tools and guidance to help chapter officers implement new programs aimed at stronger member engagement.  They will help you manage your chapter’s finances and streamline processes to minimize the effort it takes to get things done. These templates and worksheets will continue to evolve and improve as we receive feedback.

Please submit your chapter’s resources and best practices to Elizabeth George, Director of Member Engagement and Chapter Development, elizabeth.george@agohq.org so that they may also be included.
