Chapter/SIG Formation

Below you will find the necessary information and documents to submit petition’s to OHBM for Chapter and Special Interest Group (SIG) formation consideration.

Chapter Formation

Purpose.  Regional Chapters are designed to advance communities based on geographical location, that conform to one or more generally recognized geographical regions or as recognized by Council.  Chapters strive to reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of OHBM and seek the same intellectual balance as OHBM itself.  Members of a Chapter need not be members of OHBM; however, all leadership positions must be filled by OHBM members.

Definition.  OHBM defines geographic regions using the official United Nations designations.  Designation of Regions is non-exclusive in the Region and OHBM may, in its sole discretion, designate other affiliates in the Region or may sponsor or conduct programs, accept members, and perform other activities within the Region.
