How to Start a PCP Chapter
: After exploring the Primary Care Progress chapter webpages
, understanding our mission
and checking out existing chapter webpages
, send PCP an inquiry via this form
to learn more about starting a chapter and our chapter network.
: PCP Field Team will respond to your inquiry with further information within 1-2 business days and provide further resources for review.
: Introductory phone/video conference call with PCP National staff to share your motivations for forming a chapter, discuss your prospective chapter and the chapter launch process and learn how to build your core chapter leadership team.
: Recruit your local leadership team and faculty advisor(s).
: Complete a chapter application (provided by PCP National).
: If qualifications are met, complete a formal chapter agreement to officially become a “developing chapter!”
: Meet additional PCP National staff on a video call, and learn about available resources to help with recruitment (such as the PCP Chapter Information Guide
), engaging faculty, creating a leadership succession plan, establishing team roles, creating a chapter webpage and developing a purpose and goals.
: Work with your chapter to establish short- and long-term goals; plan kickoff event.
: Hold your new chapter’s kickoff event and get officially introduced to the rest of the network via PCP’s newsletter and website.
Congratulations, you are now an official chapter! Welcome to PCP “chapter-hood!”
