Start New Chapter

So...you want to start a new chapter? Everything you need is on this page

Congratulations on your decision to start a new chapter. Please use the information below to help you manage the requirements and processes involved with establishing your chapter.


The Chapter Formation Guidelines outline the requirements to form a chapter. You will need at least 15 AORN members or individuals who qualify to be AORN members who are interested in starting a chapter and being members of that chapter. Before forming a chapter, the following documents and information must be submitted to the AORN Chapter Relations Coordinator Deb Warren.

Here are several documents to help you get organized once your chapter is formed.

If you have questions or need any assistance, contact Deb at 800-755-2676, Ext. 222.
