Chapter Governance

To be successful as an NIGP chapter, it’s important to have a plan in place for how the chapter will be led.

NIGP Chapter Governance

Every chapter has an elected Board that determines policies and guidelines for the chapter. As a Board member, it’s essential that you review the governing documents that were created and revised by your predecessors to ensure they accurately reflect the current needs of your chapter.

This page has all the information you need to effectively govern your NIGP chapter, from creating officer and volunteer job descriptions to developing, implementing, and monitoring a strategic plan for your chapter’s future.
