WELCOMING THE EXECUTIVE OFFICER
The Psi Chi Board of Directors and the Central Office staff are pleased to welcome Michele Rumpf as the new Executive Officer of Psi Chi. Michele begins her career with the Society on Monday, May 17.
Michele brings to this position a strong management background in the non-profit sector. Her most recent positions include Director of Development for the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce Foundation (Fairhope, Alabama), and Director of Workforce Development for the Mobile, Alabama Chamber of Commerce. Earlier positions included Program Coordinator for the Department of Community Medicine at Mercer University and Executive Director of United Cerebral Palsy of Macon and Middle Georgia. Michele earned a B.S. in Public Administration from Auburn University (AL) and currently resides in the greater Chattanooga metropolitan area.
The IRS code changed recently requiring all non-profit organizations to file a tax return regardless of the amount of income or revenues received. Psi Chi’s accountants prepared an authorization form that will allow the Psi Chi Central Office to file a 990-N on behalf of each chapter. As long as someone from the chapter completes this form, your chapter will not need to file the 990-N because the Central Office will be authorized to file on your behalf. Forms must be signed in order to be valid. This form can be found at http://www.psichi.org/pdf/990NAuthorization.pdf
and should be submitted to the Central Office by May 31.
Chapters can find their EIN and/or charter number by logging into the Psi Chi website as the chapter administrator or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
*Chapters that choose not to file this authorization form will be required to file a tax return with the IRS themselves.*
The Psi Chi Central Office will introduce new international versions of the graduation regalia this summer beginning July 1. Since no new national versions of the graduation merchandise is being ordered, we are beginning to be out of stock on certain items. Please tell any members still needing to order regalia to do so quickly for best selection. No further markdowns to the prices of the graduation regalia will be made before June 30.
