Establishing and Organizing a Local Chapter
If you don’t have a Chapter in your local area contact the Bridal Association of America about starting one.
Members of the Bridal Association of American can form local chapters. The Association encourages local chapters as a means of advancing its mission, increasing membership and preparing Members for leadership in their community. The following guide provides information on the process of forming chapters.
Why Go Local?
The Bridal Association of American is an effective national organization which delivers a range of benefits to members. There are many things that can be accomplished on a local level much more effectively. Local chapters serve as a venue for members to get together, exchange views, attend continuing education courses, produce Bridal Events, Produce Local Publication, Get group discounts on Liability Insurance and social activities. Local chapters can regularly interact in a local community to provide programs or activities that directly impact the success of weddings. And, most importantly, a local organization is aware of and sensitive to the needs that are unique to every community. For these reasons, the creation of a local chapter would make sense and provide value to the Wedding professionals.
What You Need To Get Started
Starting a chapter is not a difficult process, but it is a process which requires commitment. It requires Wedding professionals who agree with the BAOA’s mission and wish to take a proactive role accomplishing the mission Without this commitment an effective chapter cannot exist.
