Leader Resources is where local chapter leaders can find tools and information that support their work in their communities. Below are instructions on how to access the chapter email account, general handbooks, toolkits for Slow Food USA's various program areas, information for upcoming leader calls and printable documents that can be handed out to members. This page will be updated as new materials for local chapter leaders become available, so stay tuned.
Annual Chapter Survey
It is that time of the year again! The Annual Chapter Survey will be emailed to all chapter email accounts on December 18, 2014 and are due by February 16, 2015. There is a new section on policy and lobbying, so please refer to the document below for assistance in answering those questions. If you have trouble logging into your chapter email account or have any questions or concerns about the survey, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that the link is uniquely tied to the survey and your chapter email address, so do not forward the link.
