Introduction to Student Chapters

Student Chapters

Join or form an ACI Student Chapter to maximize your influence, knowledge sharing and camaraderie! ACI has over 100 student chapters located throughout the world.

Here are the steps necessary to form a new Student Chapter:

Organizing Petition – An organizing petition signed by at least 15 ACI Student Members is required to form a student chapter. ACI Student Membership is FREE for undergraduates and graduates. Click here for the organizing petition.

Bylaws – The Student Chapter will need to submit a draft of their proposed bylaws. Click here for an example of model bylaws.

Sponsorship – A letter from the local professional ACI Chapter acknowledging it will guide and mentor the Student Chapter. Click Chapter Listing to find the local chapter in your area.

Advisor – The Student Chapter will need an advisor. The advisor will need to be a member of the local professional chapter and the ACI Faculty Network. If the advisor is an instructor and has never been a member of ACI, we will provide a FREE one-year ACI membership. Click Join the Faculty Network.
