HLAA wants to hear from chapters and state organizations (associations and offices) at least once a year. Please take a moment to complete the document(s) described below. Your completed forms give us a snapshot of the chapters and state organizations and help HLAA determine new services for our leaders. Please call (301.657.2248, extension 101) or email the HLAA State and Chapter Coordinator with any questions you have about these forms. And thank you for returning them promptly!
All HLAA Chapters and State organizations must complete a Chapter/State Update form and send it to the HLAA State and Chapter Coordinator by October 31 every year. Failure to submit the Chapter/State Update form on time will result in the removal of the organization’s name from the HLAA website. HLAA encourages all chapters and state organizations to email changes at other times to the HLAA State and Chapter Coordinator.
If the chapter or state office gained exemption from federal income tax under IRS tax code 501(c) (3) through HLAA (known also as “group exemption”), it must submit their annual budget to the HLAA State and Chapter Coordinator by October 31 each year. Failure to submit the budget (and Chapter/State Update form noted above) will result in the organization being dropped from the HLAA application for federal income tax exemption.
Please note: HLAA Chapter and State organization leaders/officers must be current HLAA members while in office. Chapters and state organizations represent HLAA national in their communities and states, hence this requirement. To join or rejoin, click here. For a list of HLAA members in your area or state, please email the HLAA State and Chapter Coordinator.
