          Deadline Exception Policy

          Who May Apply: 
          In the following cases, chapters may receive an exception to the policy of the February 15 deadline:

          1. Local advisor error (i.e., member can verify that dues were paid prior to February 15 deadline)
          2. Other extenuating circumstances

          Upon receipt of request for exception, each particular situation will be reviewed by the National Staff for approval.

          Procedure:At least thirty (30) days prior to the start of the National Leadership Conference, the local chapter must submit a request for exception to the February 15 membership deadline. The request must include the following:

          1. Completed chapter membership rosters to replace lost or missing rosters, along with appropriate dues payment
          2. A written request from the advisor, indicating the reason for late payment of dues
          3. State advisor approval

          Exceptions A chapter may not request an exception for two consecutive years, unless the person serving as advisor is not the same person who requested an exception the previous year.
