You can also access the Membership Month Campaign Graphics Package (8/25) and Chapter Resources Package (9/20) from the CoP Team Drive, and/or your chapter emails to promote the AIAS at your school and in your community!


This Membership Month we will be highlighting the work for different chapters, members, alumni, and what the National Office has to offer. Coming out of such a crazy year, we want to make sure all members and chapters feel supported! Make sure to follow @aiasorg on Instagram and get on your Quad or the International Slack Workspace!

We also will be having our first TOWN HALL of the year on October 6th at 8 pm ET! We can discuss anything and everything there, so mark your calendars and bring a friend!


1)  Level UP: Membership Growth Competition
