Chapter Handbook Online

ANG Area Representatives and the Vice President for Chapters/Areas produced a Handbook for Chapters in the fall of 2002, to cover multiple subjects of interest. It is a continuously evolving handbook, and contributions of and requests for additional subjects are always welcome. We hope it will provide answers for many questions, and sources of ideas to help with Chapter needs and problems.

We have provided the Handbook for Chapters for the use of all ANG members and nonmembers who are interested in ANG. Permission is granted to make copies of any or all portions of the handbook.

The following Chapter publications are available as PDF (Portable Document Format) files.

Chapter Handbook - Updated for 2006
