Chapter Sections: Sections may be formed by this Chapter to serve ten (10) or more dues-paying Chapter members whose geographical location, within the Chapter area, constitutes an inconvenience to participate in Chapter affairs, and whose number is insufficient to permit formation of a new Chapter. The group must petition the Chapter Executive Committee to form a Section of the Chapter, subject to approval of the Regional Operating Committee. For more information as to the requirements for the operation of the Section Group please refer to the Sierra Nevada Chapter’s Bylaws, Article VII – Sections. If you are interested in establishing a Section Group please email the Chapter President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
