How to Start a Chapter

Local chapters are organized generally in a city or on an area basis, so alumni who reside in a city or small towns and communities can join with other alumni to promote chapter activities. To have an effective unit, there should be at least 12 interested alumni within the area of consideration.  

The following outline is suggested for starting chapter:

STEP 1.

Contact the Office of Alumni Relations to request a printour of all alumni residing in or near your city or area. Selecte a nucleus of five or six alumni and call a meeting of these people at your home or some convenient location. You should decide if there is a potential for a chapter in your city or area from those present and see if they are willing to help with the formation of a chapter.  

STEP 2:

This group should consider itself an organizational committee and elect a chair, vice chair, and a secretary.

STEP 3.

Decide upon a time, date and place for an organizational meeting. Then notify the Office of Alumni Relations Director and Regional Director of your intentions.

STEP 4.

Draw up a set of bylaws as a guide for your chapter. These need not be complicated (a sample copy of a constitution is available in the Office of Alumni Relations). Send a notice of the organizational meeting to all alumni you wish invited in the area, and include a copy of the proposed bylaws as suggested by the organizational committtee.

For more detailed information, call the Office of Alumni Relations-request a copy of the New Chapter Development Kit.
