To form a Chapter, you need a minimum of 5 people committed to participate in at least one meeting per year. More meetings are encouraged, but each group may set its own meeting frequency.
Once you have 5 members ready to roll and want to set up your first meeting, contact me and I will set up a sub-forum for your Chapter. Keep in mind that the Chapter sub-forum is not a substitute for the rest of the IAP forums but simply a location to post Chapter specific activities.
Just FYI Lou, we've already had two meetings in the past 12 months. JayDevin, (D)Ratto, GKetell, Nolan, Johnathan, Angboy all came to both. We had a dozen people the first time and 19 the second. You can see threads about both by searching for BBANC.
