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 info@biomaterials.org  for approval by the Student Section Officers. Following approval, the chapter will be recognized as active.
