Our start-up documents include BNN's New Chapter Application, Statement of Commitment, Articles of Association, Conflict of Interest Guidelines, Birth Advocate or Professional Membership Application and BNN's Financial Agreement. These are the documents that must be filled out to begin the process of starting a BirthNetwork National chapter.
BirthNetwork National’s Chapter Manual provides all the materials necessary to run a chapter. The manual includes chapter meeting topic suggestions and outlines, customizable public relations materials, templates on how to produce a Birth Resource Guide, and much, much more.
Once your payment has been confirmed (usually within minutes) you will receive notification. You will then be able to log-in to the website using your email and password and can access the Chapter Manual here.
Step #3: Find at least one Co-Leader for your chapter; two or three would be even better. More hands=less work for all!
Step #4: Determine the needs of your community and choose your chapter's focus. You could provide programs, meetings, birth fairs, speaking engagements, mother to mother support, networking, etc., that will focus on addressing those needs. You decide!
