Start by enlisting a group of parents. How do you do that? Facebook or other social media is one way. Another is to create a flyer announcing a meeting time and place and post the flyers in school, church, library, etc.
Make it clear from the start that this is a community experience not a drop-off type program. To make it fun and not a burden you need the participation and creativity of all members. This congregation of people will build lifelong bonds. It’s the beginning of an exciting journey.
Once you’ve gathered a group then you need to find a place to meet. Any community space will do: a library, school, house of worship.
Then simply fill out the Chapter Application form and email or snail mail it in. Once you’ve been accepted as a Chapter, you will need General Liability Insurance. Our broker will send you an application, but you can also get insurance locally. Occationally, Chapters get coverage from the organization where they meet. We try to help you with your first year’s premium until you get up and running. Just ask us for a 50% subsidy.
