Local Unit Charter Standards
In order to maintain an affiliation with ATPE, ATPE’s chartered local units must follow guidelines approved by the ATPE Board of Directors (BOD). These standards were created with input from more than 100 local unit, region, and state leaders and were first implemented in 2014–15. The purpose of the charter standards is to promote sound business practices, transparency, financial accountability, and compliance with IRS requirements.
Please review the standards and contact ATPE Membership if you have any questions.
