IO Updates and IO Annual Report at www.nssio.org
Annual Report: [IOs] shall submit an annual report to the Internal Organizations Committee, containing the mailing address of the organization, a list of the organization's officers with their respective NSS numbers, the names of two organization members (with telephone number or e-mail address) who are to be listed in the NSS Members manual as contacts, the URL of the organization's webpage (if any), whether the organization has changed its constitution and bylaws since the last annual report, and whether copies of the organization's publications are being submitted per the following.
You can check here to see if your IO has submitted the IO Report for the current reporting period.
UPDATES:Updating IO data and submitting the IO Annual Report are done the same way. When you update your IO record during January, it is considered submitting the Annual Report for the previous calendar year. It doesn't matter whether or not you click the Submit button.
REPORT NOTES:When we say for the
previous calendar year, the items that fall into this
category are as follows: For all other items, you should
enter the current information.
Please update your data as changes occur within your IO. You should update the data as many times as necessary throughout the year.
You can check to see if your IO has submitted its IO Annual Report for the latest reporting period by clicking here.
To Update or Submit, you will need your IO serial number and password plus your name and NSS number.
FIRST: Verify that your officers are current NSS members.
SECOND: Update your IO records or Submit the IO Annual Report
The web site contains the data you have already entered. Just review the information and update it if necessary. Note that you may update the information at any time. If it changes during the year, just go in and update it.
After you have completed making the changes you want to make, you can display all the information you have on file. While it is being displayed on screen, you may use your internet browser to print the information for your records.
You may update the data as often as you please. It doesn't harm a thing.
You may do the "verify and submit annual report" process multiple times throughout the year. It doesn't harm a thing.
Periodically, the IO Committee will download the data and use it to update the "official" IO Database (not to be confused with the NSS database).
The list of Grottos, Regions, Sections, and Surveys that appear from the links on the NSS web page and the links from this web site are generated in real-time from the information contained in the IO Database that resides on nssio.org.
Please note: Grotto Serial Numbers are prefixed with zero(0); Regions are prefixed with one(1); Surveys are prefixed with two(2); and Sections are prefixed with three(3); Affinity Groups are prefixed with five(5). For example: Nittany Grotto is 14 so you would enter 000014. The Communications & Electronics Section is also 14 so you would enter 300014.
