As with any organization, there are a few formalities that are required in order to create and run an AES Section. Fortunately, there are established guidelines to make this process easier.
You should refer to the document Starting A Section. The procedure for initiating an official AES section is briefly summarised below.
This may seem like a lot to do, however it is the groundwork for developing a successful AES section. Once your section has been approved by the Board, you will need to continue to provide regular updates of your activities using the online meeting report form (accessible by section officers from the member portal). These may be published in the Journal and on the website. Details of current section officers and their contact information should be kept up to date using the online committee update form. Your regional VP will be pleased to assist you through this process.
We look forward to many rewarding years ahead.
