Annual Report

All sections must submit, an annual report either via Google Form or PDF – submitted here by May 15 to the SSC every year to keep the section in good standing.

In addition, sections must report their new officers as soon as they accept the position.  The common practice is to appoint new officers at least one month before the end of the academic year; this allows for continuity and gives the new officers the opportunity to function at one meeting before the group breaks up for the summer. The outgoing officers should leave a record of what was accomplished during the previous year. This record should be kept with the faculty advisor to allow for the history and continuity of the section.

Complete Your Annual Report Online  – You can start completing your annual report at any time and finish up later.  A link will be sent to the email address provided with a personal URL so you can come back to it before submitting it.

What is Good Standing?

ANS Student Sections must do the following things to remain in Good Standing, as required by the ANS Bylaws and Rules:

    1. Inform the SSC at least once a year of the names and contact information for the section, faculty advisor, and all officers (chair, vice chair, and advisor MUST be ANS members)
    2. File an annual report (see instructions above) with the SSC containing a statement of operations
    3. Adopt the Standard Bylaws for Student Sections (once)
      More info is here.
    4. File Rules (included in the Standard Bylaws and Rules) with the SSC and Bylaws and Rules Committee whenever they change.

You can check the status of your section below.
