How To Start a Chapter


Thank you for your interest in organizing a new local component of the ADAA.  We are pleased to provide you with the organizational manual and the manual of procedures for your proposed local.

Please download documents which should be of assistance in forming your group:

Complete all information requested and mail the appropriate copies to the recipients listed.  Local societies cannot be added without the list of zip codes of which the new local organization will be comprised.

The charter members and the officers must be current members of the ADAA.  If you are starting a new local organization and are not currently a member, the applications for membership must be sent to the Central Office prior to the materials for adding the new local.
