Here, the school will take care of the application, getting things started and
likely some of the fees for you. Bonus! Here’s how:
AMSA requests that the following requirements are met before submitting your request for an AMSA charter.
A copy of your chapter’s AMSA Chapter Constitution and your Chapter Bylaws are required when applying for a chapter charter.
Below you will find an AMSA Chapter Constitution and a sample outline for your Chapter’s Bylaws for quick and easy modification.
Please insert your chapter’s name in the AMSA Chapter Constitution where directed. We encourage you to keep the AMSA Chapter Constitution provided as is. However, if your chapter would like to modify the Constitution, you may do so.
Your Chapter Bylaws Outline should act like your chapter’s internal governing document. Please take time to thoughtfully go through and draft a Chapter Bylaws document that works for your chapter’s needs.
