Chapter Services offers a wide range of services and resources to help ACEP chapters and their leaders maximize their effectiveness. This support includes financial assistance available through grants and stipends, as well as tools designed to enhance chapter management practices and strengthen chapter operations. Through the Chapter Services office, chapters also have free access to a number of highly beneficial resources, including membership marketing materials, an electronic chapter newsletter service, and the national leader visit program.
If you are new to chapter leadership or if it’s been a while since you checked out all the services that are available to chapters, we encourage you to review the materials in this section of the web site and feel free to contact us if you have any question. If we can assist you in any way, please contact Maude S. Hancock.
