How to Form a Chapter
First, find three friends who are student members of the Society For Biomaterials and one faculty member who is an active member of the Society.
Then, write up a constitution which agrees with the National Student Section's objectives. A fill in the blank version is available below.
Next, elect or appoint officers according to your constitution and bylaws.
Finally, send a list of your officers, members, and faculty advisor along with a copy of your constitution and bylaws to the Society For Biomaterials Headquarters office firstname.lastname@example.org for approval by the Student Section Officers. Following approval, the chapter will be recognized as active.
