The Chapter Leadership Committee (CLC) serves as a communication body for all NSA Chapters. NSA appoints past Chapter presidents who serve two-year rotating terms on the CLC as the connection between our national organization and the local chapters.
Chapters are divided into four geographical regions (approximately 10 chapters in each) with a team of four to five consultants assigned to each region. In addition to being available for Chapter leaders within the assigned region, consultants are available to Chapter leaders in other areas as a resource of wisdom and counsel.
The Chapter Leadership Committee has two key functions: to act as a pool of consultants NSA Chapters available to Chapter leadership throughout the country; and to create practical leadership programming for the pre-conference leadership sessions, Convention and Chapter Leadership Institute (formerly Camp NSA).
Chapter consultants are the voice of the Chapters, with a direct line to the NSA Board, as well as a resource for support and advice to Chapter leaders. They are considered ad-hoc members of each Chapter board, as they play an important role in the Chapter’s annual plan.
