Annual Reporting Requirements

Annual affiliation reporting requirements are due March 31

What do I need to submit?

  • The reporting checklist details the items that must be completed and submitted to GCSAA. Online and print versions are available.
  • The Annual Report of Association Activities details the activities, programs and membership numbers of the chapter for the previous year.
  • A financial summary is also required, please submit your most recent Form 990. If your chapter has less than $50,000 in annual gross revenue you may submit the financial summary form or your year-end financials.

Chapters must also purchase directors and officers liability insurance and general liability insurance. Chapters that own property, such as an office building or equipment are also required to carry property coverage as part of their general liability insurance policy. GCSAA administers a program that provides policy coverage at an average annual cost of $1,100. For more information about this program, please contact Kathy Crome.

Affiliation agreement

The chapter affiliation agreement outlines the responsibilities and privileges that chapters receive from their affiliation with GCSAA. The Affiliation Agreement can be accessed here.

Chapter bylaws

Does your chapter need to revise its bylaws? You are required to submit the proposed amendments to GCSAA for review. To submit proposed bylaws revisions, please contact Kathy Crome.

To comply with the chapter affiliation agreement, it is required that chapter bylaws and GCSAA are consistent in the areas of classifications for A, B and C members, the dual membership requirement, and the composition of chapter officers and boards of directors. Your chapter may wish to write this sample language into its bylaws to comply with these areas.
