New Guidance Documents for Chapter Formation and Membership Selection

The most frequent requests for information received by PLS national headquarters focus on chapter formation and selection of members. Based on this information, the PLS Executive Committee have created two new documents to assist all new, re-established, and established chapters. While these documents are designed to help answer questions, please do not hesitate to contact national headquarters with any additional questions.

In addition, with these new documents, we welcome any feedback (comments/suggestions/etc.) regarding these new documents.

The Guide to the Formation of PLS chapters will be posted under the PLS/Charter Information section and the Guidelines for PLS Membership Selection Processes will be posted under the PLS/Membership section of the main home page.
