OverviewA national virtual member at the Secondary level is a nonaffiliated individual that does not have access to a chartered chapter, albeit active or inactive, and belongs to a secondary program or any other recognized education program at the secondary level, that currently holds an interest and is enrolled, or has been previously enrolled in a business, information technology, and/or office occupation related education field.
National virtual members at the Secondary level have the same access to all member services and programs available to non-virtual members, including but not limited to:
Members in the National Virtual Chapter would receive all of the rights and privileges as a student member as outlined in the National Policy & Procedures Handbook including Competitive Event Participation, Torch Awards Participation, and ability to run for National Office. National Virtual Chapter members would not be allocated Delegate Votes or Corporate Votes.
Members in a state supported Virtual Chapter would receive all of the rights and privileges as a student member outlined in the National Policy & Procedures Handbook and would be counted as traditional Post-secondary members for the purpose of allocating Delegate Votes & Corporate Votes (where state charters apply).
National Virtual Chapter members would advance directly to Nationals based on the current state competitive event allocation (ie, the chapter would receive as many state advancements as a chartered state association; as currently given to all independently chartered chapters).
Virtual programs may be administered in any way determined and approved by the National Center and/or State Association. Methods of program administration may include, but are not limited to: Skype, Blogs, Chats, Conference Calls, Online Meetings, email, and face-to-face.National Virtual Chapter AdvisorBrian Wolfeemail: email@example.com: 812-955-0117
