Depending on where you live, there may be a Chapter already, but you can still be involved. The Chapter listings have been updated with current contact information, so feel free to e-mail the Chapter Representative in your area or region to inquire about upcoming meetings or events. New interests in New York City and Tampa, Florida are also listed, along with their respective contacts.
The process of starting a Chapter has a few requirements. Evaluating interest amongst your peers, whether within your institution, city or region is a first step. Networking this interest through the AVIR and industry sponsors can help promote an increased awareness, and potential members. The AVIR has Chapter Committee, lead by the Director at Large (2012-13 Crystal Hanson) can help facilitate your needs.
Reviewing and completing the AVIR Chapter manual will also be necessary, as there are reporting requirements, CE application, and sponsorship information essential in having successful events. Selecting leadership, and organizing formal or informal meetings to discuss possible events and delegating the tasks that go along with AVIR sponsored CE presentations is important. Communicating those discussions and events to your constituents is important as well.
