Local Chapters

Local Chapters can be charted by geographical location or educational institutions. Traditionally, they are charted by county and college. We also accept high school chapters. Local chapters are managed by the Eastern, Southern, and Western Washington Directors, whose roles are to provide guidance and resources from YDWA.

Chartering a New Local Chapter

To charter a chapter you need:

  • 5 members
  • A record of a meeting where members voted to create your local chapter
  • A governing document (constitution and bylaws) approved at a past meeting (contact us for samples)

Send these materials to the Eastern Director if you are located east of the mountains, the Western Director if you are located west of the mountains, or the Southern Director if you’re located further south.
