Placing a Chapter on Hold
If the Chapter has not been functioning due to the fact that key Chapter leaders have either moved, become out of reach, or have lost interest, and no other core leaders have come forward to take their place, the Chapter may request of their State Office (where applicable) or Chapter Services to be put on hold. Holding status is a time during which the Chapter attempts to reorganize and re-engage. Chapters in holding status are not required to send an annual report and will not receive their baseline payment for the coming year. The State Office or Chapter Services Office will make every effort to help restart the Chapter. When the Chapter has returned to a functional state, it must notify the State Office or Chapter Services Office to be removed from hold status.
