Chapter Leader Guide

Running a chapter (or just starting one) can seem like a daunting task. We’re here to help. This document was put together to answer all the basic questions about running an ESW chapter, and a few of the advanced ones as well. It’s a living document and needs updating occasionally, both to fix broken links or out-of-date materials and to add new knowledge on what works best. We hope you find it valuable - and we’d like to know what you think either way.

Old Governance Guides

These guides pre-date the current Leadership Team, but are mostly evergreen and can provide a lot of good information, much of it ESW-specific.

Old Templates

These templates pre-date our current branding guide, but might still be useful as a starting point. We're working on updating them, and prioritization is based on requests, so if there's something you use frequently, please let our Branding Coordinator, Berlyn, know at bhubler@eswusa.org. In the meantime, feel free to download these items and edit them to fit your chapter's needs and information.
