There's been some question about what is expected of the chapter presidents, and rightfully, one WOULD want to know this before he sticks his little skinny neck up in the wind and leaves a clear head shot by the site LOL.
What a chapter does is their own business, providing that little voice on your shoulder doesn't say..."hey, can we do that?" The chapter program is nothing more than a formal announcement of local groups that want to organize into an official club. As lot of you are already having meets, and events etc....this is exactly what we envision the chapters doing. recruiting, obviously, is our prime alterior motive, and is what CF is going to reap as a benefit. The only way we'll be connected to you is through carrying the CF name within your chapter. You may have individual websites, we only ask you plug CF into those sites to cross promote. Presidential duties will consisit of nothing more than being a ring leader for your band of bombers. How you structure you chapter is up to you and the officers you appoint within your chapter. Presidents will be the liason between your chapter and us, the CF team. There will be a forum for Chapter Presidents to communicate with each other as well as the staff here at CF. I, being the "National Chapter" president, will be in charge of handling all the chapter biz and all the presidents will be my chapter. So, make it as loose or as complicated as you like, all we care is that we get all you guys meeting one another and helping to grow our family. Next year, we will probably implement some sort of yearly royalty, minimally, to help offset some of the plans we have for the chapter program, but this year is free, so lets get the chapters together and take CF to the next level. If you're interested, once again, PM me and I'll take the next step. In the meantime, I urge all those participating in the chapter threads to be discussing chapter names for their state, that way I can complete the chapter logo for your state and give you something to make letterhead, business cards, stickers, and apparel with.
