Start a New Chapter

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 (PDF) 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 becoming members of that chapter. Before forming a chapter, the following documents and information must be submitted to AORN Chapter Relations, chapterservices@aorn.org.

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