(Last reviewed March 17, 2022) If you are wondering if your chapter should meet now due to a natural disaster, epidemic or other hazardous conditions in your area —or if you should go to the meeting—we encourage you to walk through the series of "Yes" or "No" questions below to help you decide. Remember, in TOPS and in life, you are always your own best advocate.
TOPS members are encouraged to act in their own best interest.
to the next question if your meeting place is open and allowing meetings.
to the next question if there is not a "Stay at Home" order or ban on meetings the size of your chapter in effect.
Please stay home.
to the next question if none of the statements above are true for you.
Meeting is allowed.
If another CHAPTER OFFICER is willing and able to lead the program and discussion, you may meet.
If no CHAPTER OFFICERS are available, a MEMBER may facilitate a meeting/program. Please let your COORDINATOR know that no CHAPTER OFFICERS were available.
The LEADER may appoint someone to fulfill these duties in the interim.
Any number of members at a regularly scheduled meeting is a quorum. (Rule 12.a.)
If your Weight Recorder, Assistant, Leader or Co-Leader is able/willing, you may arrange an isolated weigh-in before or after a meeting or other mutually agreeable time. Leader may appoint additional Assistants if needed.
