How to Establish a Chapter
SKIP, Inc. Chapters are established, owned and operated as independent entities. Internal controls, governance, structure, and fiscal responsibilities are outlined and managed by bylaws that govern each individual Chapter. SKIP, Inc. will license a Chapter to administer SKIP, Inc. programs and to be responsible for program management exclusively.
Our guidelines for establishing a Chapter are designed to:
- Provide fast access to SKIP, Inc., services, and resources to CIPs and their families in your local area;
- Provide expertise, leadership, and the collaborative power necessary to support program readiness and implementation success;
- Allow each Chapter to retain its own fiscal responsibility to be able to manage local sponsorship and funding;
- Assist and prepare each Chapter to apply for nonprofit status, if desired to further establish their organization.
