Chapter Annual Report
Submission Portal Open Date: 10/18/21 | Submission Portal Close Date: 1/14/22
Why do we need to submit an annual report?
To remain active, SfN chapters are required to submit an annual report once every two calendar years.
Reports should include information about chapter governance, membership, finances, and activities. For chapters in the United States, submitting the annual report ensures eligibility for nonprofit status for tax purposes.
All annual reports for the current calendar year must be submitted through the online submission portal, which opens in the summer and closes at the end of the year.
What do I need to know to submit my report?
Only the chapter representative will have access the chapter annual report. To get started, log into the online submission portal using your SfN credentials.
For security reasons, the server will time out after 20 minutes of inactivity.
While it is encouraged to assemble the requested information below before beginning, you will be able save your report in draft mode before submitting it as final. Please note, you must fill in required fields on each page of the report in order to save that page and continue.
