Starting a Chapter

Want to start a NorCal JSA chapter? Great! It’s really not hard:

  1. Verify with school officials that starting a chapter/club is OK.
  2. Find a teacher at your school willing to be your chapter teacher/advisor.
  3. Create a Chapter Constitution (which you can pretty much just copy from our example).
  4. Get seven other people at your school to join and pay the $5.00 membership dues.
  5. Send those dues and a copy of the chapter constitution to the JSA office (111 Anza Blvd, Suite 109, Burlingame, CA 94010).
  6. Fill out this form once your chapter gets going.
  7. That’s it!
