Alpha Chi’s National Council publishes this journal online each fall, similar to an annual report. This issue of The Recorder houses all of the board-approved minutes taken from meetings of the National Council and its Executive Committee. In addition, it publishes regional chapter minutes along with each region’s financial statement. The Recorder also includes chapter awards and scholarship winners, the Honor Roll of donors, and national convention information. Importantly, it also provides an independent auditor’s report of the financial statements. The goal of the document is to demonstrate transparency of governance and to keep members informed of events, discussions, and accolades.
