What will the process be like for a member to transition into the new home Chapter model?
We will make it easy as possible for members to move through this process. The home Chapter structure begins on July 1, 2022.
To begin, CSI’s system will auto generate the home Chapter using the member’s Primary address, which is a required of all members. Members will be able to accept or change the assigned home address before renewing or, if a new member, before completing their transaction.
By Jan. 28, 2022 current members will begin to receive information about the process to identify their home Chapter.
Can a member join more than one Chapter?
No. Under the new structure, a member will be assigned a home Chapter.
However, multiple Chapter memberships are no longer necessary because the new structure allows members to engage and fully participate with any Chapter at no additional dues cost.
Is a member now required to join a Chapter?
Yes, every CSI member will be assigned a home Chapter.
Can a member pick or change their home Chapter? Can it be done at any point throughout the year?
Yes, the member is in charge of determine their home chapter.
To begin, members with current chapter memberships will remain part of their current primary chapter and will have the option to a different home Chapter if desired. New members or Members without a chapter affiliation will be able to accept or change the assigned home address before renewing or before completing their transaction.
Will a member be able to change their home Chapter?
A member can update their home Chapter at any point in the year. However, Chapters will not receive the dues allocation unless that change is made before the renewal is paid or within 30 days after a member receives their renewal payment confirmation.
How will the Chapter boundaries be determined?
New Chapter boundaries will be determined via zip code or geographic boundaries. Example: The Vermont Chapter is the state of Vermont. The Metro New York Chapter will be based on zip codes.
CSI National is already in the process of working with Chapters to determine the boundaries that will go live on July 1, 2022.
