Chapter Tools




Hi everyone -

Summer is such a busy time of the year for everyone.  Social events can be tempting our willpower to eat sensibly.  This is an even more important time for us to attend our chapter meetings for encouragement and support.  And when you go – why not take a friend along?

It was great spending time with those of you who were able to attend SRD this year.  As we talked about our life saving mission with TOPS I hope that all of you thought about a friend or family member who may have a life threatening illness that could benefit from joining TOPS.  Have you invited them to your chapter yet?  Don’t delay – the clock may be ticking away for them.

Election of officers is just around the corner.  Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a leader and what resources are available to you? Learn more by viewing the video on TOPS website under “The Skinny from TOPS” on the members’ tab or follow this link: 


After your elections are over, please make sure that you send your L-001 Officer Chart to your Coordinator right away after your elections.  When doing so, it is important to include your Web Designate information even if it has not changed.  This information is purged each year so if you list no Web Designate, you will have no one other than your leader who will be authorized to access various areas of the website that are important for your chapter’s use.  If you have misplaced the form that TOPS Headquarters has sent to you, remember that you (or your web designate) can access a copy of the form under the Leader’s tab on the TOPS website or you can contact your Coordinator and she will send you one.

TOPS Website has been under recent remodeling – but what a great look we are seeing when we preview the final product.  Please take a few minutes to poke around and see how easy it is to find the tools that TOPS has given us to succeed in our weight loss efforts. 

Many TOPS members will be heading to Orlando soon to honor our International Winners for 2015.  After we return from IRD 2016, we will be busy getting ready for IRD 2017.  Our area will be the hosts of this exciting event.  Thank you to those who have already signed up to help in some way for IRD 2017 in Little Rock, AR.  I hope that you consider joining us as we welcome TOPS members from all over TOPSland to celebrate 2016 winners and member accomplishments.  If you plan on attending and have a few hours of free time to help in the promo room, hospitality room, or host/hostessing – please let me know and I will add you to our list.  More info about IRD 2017 will be coming after our return from Orlando. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.  Until next month
