Start a New Chapter

So you want to 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 (Word Doc) 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.

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