Writing a chapter constitution is a lot easier than it sounds. A sample constitution and guidelines for writing an acceptable constitution can be found in the Chapter Startup Guide. If you like, you can copy the framework provided there and refine it after your chapter is founded. All constitutions must adhere to the Fundamental Principles of the Junior State meaning that they are democratically run and student led, and must adhere to any school rules.
The structure of your chapter government and the procedures you choose to adopt are up to you and the other members of your chapter. Your Chapter Constitution should be mailed to the JSA national office. Unless you hear back quickly, you can assume that it has been approved.Prev Step Eight: Organize your First Meeting
