Local Chapters Resources

NAYGN is committed to helping local chapters survive and thrive, but we do not dictate how each local chapter should be run. The resources on this website have been developed by local chapters and are posted here for the benefit of any other local chapter who may be able to benefit from their use. If you are looking for specific guidance or information that is not available here, please contact your country’s Operating Officer (Canada@naygn.org or USA@naygn.org) and we would be happy to help you get what you need.

Local Chapter Communications
Local chapter leads are not only the leaders of their chapters; they are also the points of contact between their chapters and the continental NAYGN organization. NAYGN communicates with its local chapter leads through the Operating Officer and the Regional Leads, and uses the following tools:

Local Chapter Leads Email Distribution List

The Operating Officers maintain an email distribution list of all NAYGN local chapter leads. If you are a local chapter lead and you have not been added to this list, please contact the US (USA@naygn.org) or Canadian Operating Officer (Canada@naygn.org).

• Monthly local chapter lead webinars

The Operating Officers host monthly webinars or teleconferences for all local chapter leaders. The purpose of these meetings is to support NAYGN local chapters by keeping you connected to the core, regional leads, and each other. These meetings provide updates on what is happening with other local chapters and issues that the core wants to communicate. These meetings also provide tips, training, or a sharing of best practices for you to help your local chapter. Additionally, this is a forum for local chapter leads to ask candid questions of the core or of each other. If you are a local chapter lead and have not received an invitation to these events, please contact USA@naygn.org and/or Canada@naygn.org.

Local Chapter Lead Briefs

The Operating Officers send out local chapter lead briefs to communicate issues that the NAYGN core and committees want to make local chapter leads aware of.

End of Year Metrics

The NAYGN core requests that all local chapters keep track of the activities that their chapters are participating in throughout the year. Refer to the end of year metrics page for specific information on these metrics and why they are important.
