Retaining Records

Our Commitment to MembersBelow is a list outlining how long clubs should keep financial and administrative records. Depending on your club's needs, you may add items to this list.

Legal and Controversial Correspondence: Permanently

Minute Books and Membership Rosters: Permanently
