Start Date & Form Submission Time * Policies & Procedures: ATTENDANCE POLICY (please sign to register acceptance of policy update): *
All Chapters track attendance. While we have a flexible policy, there are rules in place.This role will be handled by the Vice President and
the monthly tracker will be shared with both Membership Coordinator and President. The following change in our policy comes from the overall issue of the need to be present in order to give and receive referrals. It's assumed that attendance will be consistent when a business joins a chapter. The protected categories in
PNA are in high-demand; inconsistent attendance hurts both the member and the group, and prevents a better contributor from joining PNA. Chapters meet weekly, and the commitment to attending should be expected.
This policy change does not apply to excused or medical leaves that each Chapter has the right to provide exceptions on a case by case basis. Members must communicate these issues to the Vice President in order for any extended absences more than 31 days to be approved.
Members will be allowed no more than (1) absence per month. After (60) days, if there are additional unexcused absences, the member will be contacted to determine the cause. If attendance does not improve within the next (30) day period, the membership will be in jeopardy, and/or forfeiture of membership.
If a member is faced with the need for a 2nd absence during a month, they are expected to send a substituteto take their place. This individual cannot be of any competing nature to any paid member in the Chapter. He or she will be expected to provide a prepared commercial for the absent member category, then will be
allowed to present a commercial that introduces their business to the members. The incentive here is exposure to their business(s) and an opportunity to experience a PNA meeting.
Unless the substitute is an employee of your organization, you cannot have the same person represent your business more than (2) times. This avoids repetitive substitutes earning business opportunities without investing
in a PNA membership, nor contributing in general as a member or officer. PNA is a “Pay-to-Play” organization.
