Here are the different ways you could get financial support:
Chapter Rebate eligibility
Section awards chapters who are performing. Here are the criterion:
A chapter is required to maintain a membership of not fewer than ten (10) members other than students, and to hold and report not less than two meetings in the technical category per year. Joint chapter meetings (where the chapter is joint with two or more sections) will be credited to the administrative (parent) section
Meeting Activity Report(s): Meeting activity reports are key to unit maintenance and viability. To facilitate accurate reporting, a Meeting Report Form (L31) should be submitted via the web for each meeting and contain the information requested in the form fields.
Ensure you fill out the Officers names within 20 days from the election: http://www.ieee.org/societies_communities/geo_activities/required_reporting/officer_forms.html
Report your finances on Netsuite (certain section might want you to fill out their form and they will submit it directly to IEEE. Contact your section): https://www.ieee.org/societies_communities/geo_activities/required_reporting/financial_reporting.html
Concentration Bank (not required but strongly suggested by IEEE): rebate direct deposit into the concentration bank. To setup an account, go to http://www.ieee.org/membership_services/services/financial/treasury/concentration.html
Chapter rebate: where your dollar is coming from
Section gets: Membership rebate: US$3 for each member, Graduate Student member, Student, or Associate grade member, US$1.50 for each Affiliate, and US$4 for each Senior or Fellow grade member, based on 31 December 2015 statistics.
The section might reward a % of the bonus to the chapter if they filed on time. It is up to the section therefore it is important to retain your members and increase membership: help the section, help your chapter.
