To Prospective Chapter Leaders:

This page details how UNA-USA members can form an officially recognized chapter, and the requirements a chapter must follow to remain in good standing with UNA-USA. Our goal is to help you explain the importance of the United Nations to your friends, neighbors, and leaders in your community. Your work as a leader, educator, and advocate is essential as we work together to expand support for U.S. leadership at the United Nations. Thank you for these special contributions! May your time as a UNA-USA volunteer be rewarding and fulfilling.
