ACSM Chapter Challenge
ACSM created the Chapter Challenge to encourage regional student members to take full advantage of the opportunities ACSM affords them.
By joining the national organization, students gain access to ACSM journals, get a 20% discount on ACSM textbooks, become eligible for grants and travel awards, enjoy discounted CEC course costs and much more.
The chapter with the greatest percent increase in new national student members — as well as the chapter with the greatest numerical increase in new national student members — between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30 each win $1,000.
Individual university departments can also compete for a separate prize — the department with the most new national student members gained in the same time period will likewise win $1,000 to put toward the student experience.
To qualify, students must be both active regional chapter and national org members at the end of the time period.
We can win this one, folks. Encourage your students to consider national membership today!
- Students must be chapter members.
- The challenge is limited to the five chapters holding fall meetings (GNY, MW, MA, NE, SW).
Students have two ways to join ACSM nationally as part of challenge:
1. Prospective regional chapter student members can add a national ACSM student membership when they register for their fall chapter meeting. Since the majority of chapter-only student members join their chapter during the meeting-registration process, this is the easiest way for them to also become national ACSM members.
2) If a student is already a chapter member, they (or their faculty member, who is often the one who handles their registration) will have to contact ACSM’s Customer Experience Team at email@example.com by Nov. 30, 2022, and request to add a national ACSM membership.
