New/Reactivating Chapter: ARMA International's has many chapters throughout the world. From time to time there is interest in an area that would like to form or reactivate a dormant chapter to meet the needs of the local membership. The following documents are used to form a new or reactivate a dormant chapter.

Chapter Intervention Procedure: It is unfortunate that periodically one or more of the Association chapters becomes, or appears to become, non-functioning. The purpose of the intervention program is to identify the issues in the chapter that are causing it to be non-functioning. The desired result is to reactivate the chapter and prevent it from going into dormant status. The earlier the need for intervention is identified, the better the Association is able to bring resources to bear to preserve a chapter.
Chapter Dormancy Process: It is unfortunate that periodically a chapter becomes eligible for dormancy status. If a chapter has been recognized as endangered and a cost/benefit analysis determines dormancy is the best option, the following is the process for chapter dormancy and dissolution. Note: Before dormancy can be initiated, the identification process and cost/benefit analysis as defined in the Chapter Intervention Process should be completed to determine the appropriate action.
