Chapter Administration

This section provides resources for chapter leadership to help you lead your chapter. Two entities support our FAPAC chapters: 

    • The Chapter Committee supports formation of new chapters, development of current chapters, and coordination of administrative information between FAPAC leadership and the chapters. It is also responsible for amending the FAPAC Chapter Guidelines. 
    • Regional Directors represent the chapters in their region on the National Board of Directors.

Here is the committee:

New Chapters

We are always looking to welcome new chapters to FAPAC. A group of government agency employees consisting of ten or more current (or prospective) members within a local geographic area may form a chapter. Members of a FAPAC chapter must also be a member of FAPAC National. To learn more about chapter membership, contact us at: fapac@fapac.org

If you would like to help out with the Chapter Committee, please contact us at chapter@fapac.org

We are currently revising the FAPAC Chapter Guidelines. The September 2017 version is the latest revision.
