If you are interested in helping starting a local Vanguard Chapter in JAX, we have listed some guidelines.
SELECT A LOCATION FOR YOUR MEETING
It can be a restaurant, Veteran's Halls (VFW, American Legion) car dealership, activity room where you live, at your local airport. Try to find a room that does not charge a fee.
CHOOSE A DAY AND TIME FOR YOUR MEETING
Week-day or week-end
Many chapters hold their meetings monthly. Others bi-monthly. To see what various cities do, view the National Vanguard web site for schedules. You can decide what your members want to do.
Invite a speaker from the community or organizations that may be of interest to your group the GM from AA. You can make the decision as to duration of the presentation including a Q & A that is convenient for your members.
Decide if your group is interested in a structured organization. i.e officers.
Prepare bi-laws. You can check with the National Vanguard officers for information.
Decide if your members want to extend a fee for dues and if you prepare a newsletter, a fee for printing and mailing.
Most chapters dues are between $5 and $20.
These funds keep your chapter solvent and can pay for events or door prizes.
VANGUARDS IS A SOCIAL GROUP WHERE WE GATHER TO SHARE LOCAL AND COMPANY INFORMATION TO IT'S MEMBERS.
