  • +/- Application Process and Conditions

    SIOR’s admissions procedure, conducted pursuant to the terms of SIOR’s Bylaws, seeks to assure that applicants for all classes of membership are fully and fairly evaluated in terms of qualification criteria stated in the Bylaws and Policy Manual, as may be modified from time to time. Membership is to be conferred upon all persons demonstrating achievement of the applicable criteria; and no applicant will be admitted on any other basis. Review the current admissions criteria.

    The application is forwarded to the applicable Chapter Admissions Chair (or Regional Director if no Chapter jurisdiction applies) for review. Chapter review includes a personal interview and this process may take approximately 30 days. The application is then announced to the Chapter to solicit comment for 10 days. The Admissions Department provides the applicant with the endorsement form at the end of this comment period. The endorsers have 60 days to return the forms to SIOR Headquarters. A copy of the completed application and endorsements will then be forwarded to the applicable Chapter Admissions Chair (or Regional Director if no chapter jurisdiction applies) for final review. If the Chapter Admissions Chair has any final questions, s/he has the opportunity to conduct a second interview before signing off on the application.

    Once the Chapter completes its review, the Manager of Admissions will evaluate the application. Applications that do not clearly meet the requirements will be sent to the Admissions Committee for review and recommendation. The Manager of Admissions or Admissions Committee may request additional information relevant to an applicant’s qualifications. The Manager of Admissions or Admissions Committee examines all relevant materials and makes a recommendation to the Chapter Leadership Council (CLC) concerning further action. The CLC may recommend that applications be approved, approved subject to the fulfillment of educational requirements and/or ethics training, disapproved, or postponed pending the receipt of additional factual information or an interpretation of the Bylaws. The Chapter Leadership Council takes final action on the recommendations of the Manager of Admissions and/or Admissions Committee. Applications are approved on a monthly basis.

    The Manager of Admissions notifies applicants of the results of their applications following each review.

  • +/- SIOR Chapter Membership and Dues
