Our Chapters

Chapters are SOCM’s local unit. They offer locals a place for to meet, discuss concerns, and get involved in enacting change. By joining with a chapter, you can work directly on local issues while connecting with members of your community.

SOCM chapters emerge when a group of 15 or more members decide to become a formal part of SOCM and are accepted by the Board. Chapters are organized as representative of a county, a combination of counties, or a major metropolitan area. Once the Board accepts a chapter, it is directly connected to SOCM’s organizational resources, decision-making, and collective responsibilities.

Each chapter elects a representative and alternate to the Board, and chapter members can serve in a number of leadership positions including: Chapter Chairperson, Publicity Coordinator, Membership Coordinator, Fundraising Chair, and Events Chair.

If you are looking to get active on local issues that affect you and your community, join a chapter today. Click on the corresponding graphics below to learn more about our chapters across the state.
