Dear Chapter Leader,
The IRS online filing portal is back online! We’ve monitored the site over the weekend and it seems to be fully accessible at this time. With the due date for annual responsibilities looming closer, please work to submit your IRS and state filings, as well as update your membership roster and pay chapter dues by Tuesday, February 14, 2023. You can find more details regarding each of the tasks needed to be completed to keep your chapter in good standing in the new Chapter Leader Web Portal.
At this point, if you have not started completing these tasks, please start by filing your taxes with the IRS; as they may enforce penalties for late filing now that the site is operational. If you need help completing these tasks, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Angel Kearns (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Chapter Engagement Coordinator for your region.
Jamie Curtis (she/her)
Director of Chapter Engagement
Brooke Smith and Angel Kearns will be hosting a live Chapter Hub training tomorrow, February 8th, at 8:30 pm EST (5:30 PST). Please use this link to join this session, where they will walk through the process of updating your chapter’s membership in the Hub and answer any questions you may have.
Can’t make the live training? No need to worry! Chapter leaders will be able to access and replay the training webinar shortly after through the new Chapter Leader Web Portal. If you need additional help navigating the Chapter Hub, please reach out to Angel Kearns (email@example.com) or the Chapter Engagement Coordinator for your region.

PFLAG Academy Online: February 2023
Thursday, February 23, 2023 | 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT: Be Kind, Rewind: Creating a Kinder PFLAG
Nearly everyone strives to be a more inclusive, kind leader, but getting it right is rarely easy. We are all products of our upbringing, environments, (un)conscious biases, and daily stressors. And while we may intend on being welcoming and inclusive, the impact of our actions may not be. In this learning session participants will focus on learning from the past, understanding the present, and clearly defining action items that will create positive change in the future.
