OLRS Remittance Process Change | In preparation for CFMAP and netForum transitions, the process for remitting OLRS registrations and charging the related national fees will change, beginning with the May 3, 2019 OLRS ACH deposit. All credit card registration dollars collected will be remitted on a gross basis, meaning full registration dollars. Material, administration, shipping and state certification fees will not be deducted. These program fees will be charged monthly, following the completion of the offering. Fees will be processed via a credit memo issued to the chapter and deducted from future disbursements to the chapter.
National will issue a one-time reimbursement of fees already deducted in prior ACH batches for offerings ending in or after May 2019. Chapters will be provided a report with the detail of the calculated fees. Please refer to the Chapter ED Webinar Finance Update presentation, also located in Chapter Business Tools - Chapter Finances section. Questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: This change impacts non-CFMAP chapters only.
