How to Start a SAMPE Student Chapter

Student chapters are important to SAMPE because they support the Society’s educational mission and serve as training groups for the next generation of members. 

Students and faculty members are encouraged to create student chapters according to the following charter establishment requirements:

  1. A Student Chapter located within North America can be chartered by the SAMPE North America Board.
  2. Four students and a faculty advisor/professional are required to form a Student Chapter. These students are not required to attend the same school.
  3. It is also required that a Professional Chapter sponsor the Student Chapter. The Professional Chapter initiates the request for the Student Chapter to be chartered. That request is submitted to the SAMPE Secretary and then presented to the SAMPE Board of Directors.

For additional assistance, please contact SAMPE Membership Manager, Katia Tyra at
