Technical Requirements

To aid in the review and approval process, please adhere to the following standards:


Chapter Folders

Upload EACH certification requirement as a separate PDF file. (Note: folder must be assigned write permission first; provide a Google-enabled email address to chapter's WP Board of Directors Member)

REMINDER: Rename each file before uploading, remembering to avoid nicknames and redundancies for ease of searching & sorting. Do not type "Alumni" (redundant; all city names are alumni), or use nicknames such as "SAC", "PAC" "RAC", "GA", etc. (not unique & thus can be misunderstood or miscategorized). See below for the five chapters with abbreviation exceptions (city names that contain at least three words).

Use one the following naming conventions:

The following naming exceptions are allowed for chapters with 3 or more words in their city names: 

note: chapter-level folders will not appear unless logged in with the aforementioned write-permission accounts (Polemarch & Keeper of Records)
