Starting your own chapter

To start your own chapter there are couple things you need to do. First, you need to recruit members. To the left is a powerpoint presentation designed for a member recruitment meeting. To recieve a charter for your chapter, you need a minimum of seven members. Next, you need to fill out a petition for a charter. Once you have done both of these things, you can mail in: 1) membership forms and $55 checks for each of your members, 2) a petition for a charter, and 3) $75 fee for your charter to headquarters. You can find all the needed forms to the left.

The next step is electing officers. A minimum suggestion for officers is president, president-elect, treasurer, and secretary. One you have completed this, you can mail in your officer updates to headquarters.

running your chapter

By November 1 every year, each chapter must turn in: 1) a dues cover letter with the dues of new and returning students, 2) a membership form for all new members, and 3) the officer update form. By February 13, each chapter must mail in the senior certificate form. A description of the rituals performed at official AO ceremonies is included in this section. All forms can be found to the left.
