STARTING A NEW CHAPTER
Why are chapters important?
ONE's chapters are our lifeblood! They help pull through our overall mission at a local level, providing local visibility and activation of key efforts like Pride and volunteering in our communities. Chapters provide a boots-on-the-ground opportunity to expand membership and build awareness of ONE.
What does it take to become a chapter?
Staring up a chapter takes a lot of work and dedication, but it is so rewarding in the end. Each chapter has the flexibility to take shape according to the needs of the local market, but these factors remain constant:
Designated Chapter Leadership
Periodic Meetings and Activities
Member Expansion & Awareness Building
