HOW TO FORM A CHAPTER
A Chapter shall function as a unit within a Department.
Any member in good standing with the assistance of a Department Officer may
organize a Chapter within her own Department.
Those who desire to form a Chapter shall make
application for a Charter to the President of the Department in which they reside.
The National President and National Corresponding Secretary shall issue the
Charter upon receipt of the application, properly executed, by the charter
members of the proposed Chapter.
The Chapter shall be instituted and officers installed within ninety (90)
days from date of Charter.
Charters shall be kept open for all eligible applicants whose membership
applications are received at National Headquarters within sixty (60) days
from date of Charter.
The organizer shall send the Department Treasurer the following:
- Charter application signed by at least five (5) applicants.
- The Department Treasurer shall proceed with the applications as
outlined in procedure under "Membership".
- In forming a new Chapter, the meeting at which Officers are elected
is a regular business meeting.
You may print and fill out an
application for a new Chapter. It's in pdf format so you will need Adobe
Reader or a similar program installed on your computer.
