SSN encourages our members to participate in their regional chapters.
A city in each provinces with at least 15 registered members of the SSN may request permission to organize regional chapter. Chapter designation may be applied for at any time and will be expeditiously considered by the executive committee.
SSN members in that region should email the following to the SSN General Secretary:
- ♦ A letter expressing interest in organizing a regional chapter
- ♦ Proposed officers for the chapter
- ♦ Proposed regional office
Each chapter should abide by the rules and regulation of the SSN.
SSN will support the regional chapters to conduct clinical meetings, research, training and other activities.
A Chapter shall remain a Chapter until and unless its Charter is terminated. A Charter may be terminated by either the Chapter or SSN at any time for any reason, with or without cause, on thirty days written notice to the other party. Upon termination by either party for any reason, the Chapter must immediately cease utilizing the SSN name and acronym and may no longer claim any affiliation with SSN.
