It takes a lot to build a successful chapter model. From creating the operational and strategic foundation to designing visual identity guidelines, there are many factors that come into play to support your chapters. That’s what MemberNova’s webinar featuring the Computer Science Teachers Association is all about!
One organization, multiple advantages
Chapters, although their own entity, serve as an extension of the organization spanning across states or even countries. The presence of chapters allow you to have the greatest advantage of all – the ability to have a local presence to promote a main mission and goals. Acting as advocates, chapter officers are your key to being able to localize your messaging and form deeper connections with your members.
With 36,000 members spanning 78 chapters, Jake Baskin, Executive Director of the Computer Science Teachers Association, initiated a hybrid model where chapters became the lifeblood of the organization while still operating as their own entity, leading their own programs. In the webinar, he explains the benefits, legalities and his personal advice to any association looking to expand.
