Start a New Chapter

To form a local chapter, the first step is to contact the Chairman of the Charter Committee (contact information in the New Charter Checklist) who will connect you with the Vice President and District Director for your area.  The regional Vice President and local District Director will guide you through the chartering process.

In addition to following the CRA Bylaws (see Section 10), a new charter package must be submitted.  The documents required for the new charter package can be downloaded here:
