VII.B. GUIDELINES FOR ESTABLISHING CHAPTERS
Members of the Association in any locality may establish a chapter upon approval of the Board of Directors. The members planning the formation of a chapter indicate their intention to the Vice-President/Past President who conveys it to the Board on their behalf. The business office can provide a list of members in the region specified and this list can serve as the new chapter's first mailing list. Subsequently, the chapter may seek to increase its membership by communicating with other persons in its area who are not members of the Association.
The first meeting may be organizational so that the chapter's objectives and policies can be defined.
