create a new chapter

 

Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “A rising tide raises all boats.” It’s something we believe in, and there is nothing quite like connecting with other passionate, like-minded scientists to share experiences and help lift you through and beyond your academic career.

 

Creating a GWIS chapter will allow you to recruit those people, make an impact in your community, and develop a bond with other women scientists that will last a lifetime.

 

 

Creating a New Chapter is EASY!

Here is what you need to do to get started:

 

STEP 1

Does a chapter already exist in your area? Check our chapter directory. If the answer is no, then move on to Step 2! 
   

STEP 2

Contact info@gwis.org to receive a package with detailed instructions. Our amazing membership committee chair will help you along the way to make sure the process is as smooth as possible.
   

STEP 3 

Recruit at least 7 charter members to serve as officers of the new chapter. These members must be GWIS members, so make sure you have your memberships up to date!
   

STEP 4 

Prepare the chapter establishment petition and the chapter bylaws. (This is easier than it sounds!)
   

STEP 5 

Get approved and receive $500 to help you launch your new chapter! It’s that simple!
