How to Host a Chapter Meeting


  • President should welcome guests and members at meeting and introduce board members
  • A 30-second introduction by each member is highly recommended in general meetings to encourage networking and create a positive environment.
  • Be sure to introduce guests!

Member Focus:

  • Members should be made aware of professional development opportunities such as achieving AICI FLC, AICI CIP, or AICI CIM certification. Announce any certification study groups sponsored by the Chapter.
  • Encourage members to participate and get involved in local chapter activities.
  • Always share good news and exciting activities with members to create a positive environment.
  • Promote AICI’s international conference and encourage members to begin saving funds so they are able to attend

Non-member Focus:

  • Review the benefits of becoming an AICI member and potential professional development opportunities with added follow-up support.
  • Encourage all to visit AICI's website.


  • Prepare evaluation forms for attendees to fill out and assign one of your board members to collect them before the meeting is adjourned.
  • Use the evaluation results to plan future meetings.
