01.Select Your Candidates and Appoint Officers
You may invite students who meet minimum academic and music standards to join your Tri-M chapter. They should also display leadership and service qualities and be of good character. All music students should be made aware of these criteria and of the selection process in general.
02.Hold Your Chapter Induction Ceremony
A great way to connect with other Tri-M students and create a strong foundation for your chapter is to invite a nearby established chapter to perform at your induction ceremony.
03.Hold Your First Chapter Meeting
As with any good organization, there are a few rules, procedures, and guidelines to keep everyone singing off the same songsheet. By all means, customize your chapter guidelines to reflect your school’s unique situation and opportunities, but in general, a Tri-M chapter in San Diego, CA should resemble a Tri-M chapter in Lincoln, NE, Melbourne, FL, or overseas.
