- Make a list of at least 5 active SABR members in your proposed group who agree to be members of that chartered community. You can use the Members Directory and search by city, state or ZIP code. They don’t need to sign any paperwork, just willingly agree to be members of that community if it is approved.
- Then e-mail that list, along with one member designated as an official group liaison, to Leslie Heaphy, SABR Vice President.
- SABR’s Board of Directors will consider the proposal at its next meeting and contact the liaison if the community is approved.
- For more information, visit our Admin Tools page at admin.sabr.org for group leaders, which offers suggestions and guidelines for meetings, speakers, and getting publicity for SABR and Chartered Community events.
