  • Secretary: Write meeting minutes for each meeting, and update the club’s member count, details, and information through our monthly update forms.

 

Meeting Guidelines

In the meetings, members can discuss the topics YEFA shares through its resources or learn about them. School Chapters may also operate as investment or entrepreneurship clubs. Leaders are free to set up meeting contents however they want, as long as it covers finance.

Monthly Update Forms

Each School Chapter is required to fill out the monthly School Chapter form. In this form, you will have to disclose the number of members. At the beginning of each school year, the school chapter may change leaders. This too must be disclosed in the monthly update forms when that change occurs.
