How to Start an EERI Student Chapter

How to start a Student Chapter at your college or university

  1. Gather interest at your university to create a chapter.
  2. Review the Student Chapter Authorization and Regulations for details on relevant requirements and what needs to be included in your application.
  3. Submit a formal application using the online EERI Student Chapter Application Form. Make sure to upload a single pdf document to the application form with the following items included:
    • Cover letter to EERI stating the Chapter qualifications.
    • A letter confirming university endorsement.
    • A list of the proposed Faculty Advisor(s) and Contact Member(s).
    • A list of at least six (6) active EERI student members and proposed Chapter Officers.
  4. Wait for a formal approval letter of your Student Chapter from EERI.

Once your chapter is approved

  1. Start launching chapter activities! During the first year of establishment of your Chapter, you should:
    • Establish rules and elect officers. Send EERI your list of officers once ready, or when you send your annual report.
    • Review Chapter Best Practices for good ideas about chapter activities and governance.
    • Send EERI an annual report about chapter activities by May 1st. You can view the report template with the required information at the¬†Annual Report Submission web page.
