Gold Status

Gold status recognizes Chapters which go above and beyond in providing their members with opportunities for professional development, positive community impact, and engagement with the larger Net Impact network. Gold Chapters earn conference discounts, public recognition through Net Impact’s website and newsletter, and consideration for Chapter of the Year.

To achieve Gold status, you will need to fulfill all of Net Impact’s requirements. Gold status should be a goal for every Chapter. Here are the ways you can accumulate points and become a Gold Chapter. Click each option to learn more.

Grow Your Chapter!

Baseline numbers for participation were collected in May 2017 during annual reporting. Participation is scaled to take chapter size into effect:

  • under 50 participants = 10 new members required
  • 50-100 = 20% membership growth
  • >100 = 20 new members or 10% membership growth, whichever is higher.

If you did not submit your baseline for engaged participants, please complete this form to be eligible for these points!
