Chapters: New Chapter Creation

Dear NPA enthusiast,

As you receive this communication NPA recognizes you have an interest in forming or revitalizing an NPA Chapter in your area. The most frequent request is, "How do I get started?" Herein is information to assist you. The leaders in NPA hope that you will find the involvement in Chapter Leadership rewarding and a bright star in your career accomplishments.

First, we would like you to become very familiar with the NPA and the task at hand. To know the Network Professional Association you need to be a member, so that you have access to the member only resources. This may be your first leap of faith, register your membership or renew now. (Access issues contact NPA for help)

To set up or revitalize a chapter there must be a leadership group in the chapter composed of 5 NPA members in good standing. There is a fair amount of planning, communication, forms and finally authorization to process. The NPA publishes the NPA CHAPTER HANDBOOK and the accompanying NPA MEMBER HANDBOOK. Both of these items are available on the document link of member page and the NPA Chapters page.

The "NPA Code of Ethics" is a centerpiece of NPA. Recognize how it complements your efforts in setting up a chapter. When your chapter is authorized by the Executive Director, the president of your chapter will be granted access to the administrative module of where you will find chapter management tools like email and database downloads.  

Don't be overwhelmed. Take everything in programmed, organized steps. Have a planning group to help set reasonable goals. Use the table of contents in the manuals to find just the sections you need for now. We are all volunteers. Program your volunteer effort, don't burn out.

Finally, solicit support from local individuals, companies and vendors. Everyone benefits from being associated with an educated professional group. And, visit the NPA web site frequently. It is the information hub for the NPA.

All news and benefits are posted there.
