Formation of State Chapters

Why do we need a Chapter? 

  •  A local forum for the personal and professional development of  W0S members
  • Provide an opportunity to develop leadership, managerial, public speaking and group decision-making skills
  • A structure to develop a pool of local, female ophthalmologic leaders to discuss new legislation, issues of importance and other common challenges
  • Chapter start-up guide to assist in the formation of local chapters

 

New Chapter Procedure
Contact the WOS  Executive Office concerning the planning and possible establishment of a new chapter. Applications for a new proposed chapter should be in writing and include:

  • A statement explaining how the proposed new chapter will enhance WOS objectives in the state
  • Identification of chapter boundaries (statewise)

State Chapters promote Women Ophthalmologists objectives at the local level and to encourage more active member participation by making society activities more accessible. Members are encouraged to actively participate in areas of interest and concern to fellow ophthalmologists. It is important, however, that such activities are limited to the geographic area of the chapter. . It is desirable for chapters to have ease of communications, membership at a minimum of 20 members and defined geographic boundaries. Each state should have its own chapter.
