    Northeast District Student Chapters CMS

    There are now two additional ways student chapters can report their compliance with the Chapter Minimum Standards (CMS) and Chapter Management Program.

    (1) CMS – Chapter Minimum Standards
    Student chapters can now use the following link to submit for the minimum standards. Link here.

    (2) Chapter Management Program (the equivalent to CBar award)
    Student chapters may also use the attached workbook to submit for CMS and Chapter Management Program.

    Submission Timeline
    o Reporting Period: April 1, 2014 – March 31, 2015
    o Annual submissions are due to the parent chapter and copied to APICS District and Chapter Services ([email protected]) by April 30.

    The Chapter Minimum Standards (CMS) is a required submission for all student chapters. Starting with the 2014/2015 reporting cycle, student chapters that do not submit CMS be reviewed by the district volunteer leadership team for either revitalization or possible closure.
