The Chapter formation process is now submitted through the online petition.  The online petition process automatically populates active IEEE and Society members of that particular Section who are eligible to sign the petition (GSM and above) and obtains the signatures and approvals electronically. It is recommended to reach out to the Section prior to initiating the petition.  The individual submitting the petition will need to use their IEEE Web Account to sign on.
