Forming a PMA Chapter
New chapters are developed in phases. The initial phase requires 4 individuals in a region to meet and form the initial four officers that will facilitate the not-for-profit status of the chapter. These individuals must become, or already be members of the PMA. The second phase requires the recruitment of 6 addtional PMA members to meet the minimum requirement 10 chapter members.
