  • Visit other TSA chapters for ideas, suggestions, and assistance in starting your chapter.
     

  • Conduct a membership campaign with flyers, posters, and announcements..
     

  • Hold your first chapter meeting to introduce students to TSA.  Have refreshments and show "What is TSA?" PowerPoint.
