Petition for a Section Charter Form

Page 1

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Members interested in starting a new section must first submit a Petition for a Section Charter form. All individuals interested in starting a new AACE section must be current AACE members in good standing.


A petitioning section must also draft section bylaws. You should start with the sample bylaws provided on this page.


Petition for a Section Charter forms and bylaws will be reviewed by AACE staff and Board of Directors to assess the request against identified member needs and potential impacts to existing AACE sections.


Petitioners should be aware that completion and submission of the form does not guarantee that AACE will form the requested section. Additionally, charter petitions and bylaws that have successfully completed the review process will be voted on by the AACE Board of Directors.

Section Bylaws
Each potential section is required to also submit the proposed bylaws of the section at the time the section is petitioning to be grated a charter. 

Start with the Sample Section Bylaws and make appropriate changes. If the proposed section bylaws are not in compliance with AACE International, your Regional Director will work with you on any portion of the bylaws that need to be changed in order to get the bylaws in compliance.

Remember, the section bylaws are the governing document for the section.
