Month for Membership Start Date & Form Submission Time * Policies & Procedures: ATTENDANCE POLICY:
As of 2017, all Chapters will begin tracking attendance. 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. Chapter’s 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 substitute
to 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.
