    Voting Representatives

    Every Chapter/Chapter Foundation, as a member of the FMPC, has the right to appoint a voting representative fom within their staff. Where a Chapter and a Chapter Foundation co-exist, they shall choose only one voting representative.

    Voting Representatives are encouraged to attend two semi-annual FMPC meetings; in the spring at ACLF, and in the fall at COD. Representatives vote on the FMPC Grant Awards slate, Steering Committee Nominees, and other matters as needed.
