How do I Transfer into a New Chapter?
Icon - CD CheckmarkIf you have recently changed clubs or have an upcoming move in your future, you might find yourself within new chapter boundaries. Because CMAA membership is dual and simultaneous with your respective (geographically determined) chapter and CMAA National, it is necessary for you to transfer chapters. How is this done? CMAA has all the answers you will need.

Transferring chapters is simple:

Go to the Document Central section of the CMAA website and select the “Chapter Info” category in the dropdown box. The “Chapter Transfer Request” form can be found there. Click on the form and complete it in its entirety.

Send the form to the managing director or secretary of the chapter to which you are transferring. If you are unsure who this person is, call National Headquarters or visit the CMAA online member directory. Simply log in using your username and password click on the “Senior Chapters” link and then select the chapter for which you are looking.

The chapter’s managing director or secretary will then get you set up with the chapter and will verify this by signing the bottom of the Chapter Transfer Request Form. He or she will then send the form to National Headquarters and to your previous chapter’s managing director or chapter secretary.

If you have been, or are about to be, on the move, don’t let us lose you! Tell us where you are going so that you will not only continue to receive all of CMAA’s benefits and resources, but you can also be welcomed to your new chapter and be able to take advantage of all of your local educational and social happenings.
