Starting A New Chapter
The purpose of each chapter of Gamma Alpha Lambda shall be to honor God through dedication to building relationships and carrying each other’s burdens with the focus on becoming Godly women. Emphasis will be placed on unity and lifting each other up as sisters in Christ. GAL members are Christian examples seeking to make a difference through servanthood.

The Steps to Starting a New Gamma Alpha Lambda Chapter:
- Seek the Lord in prayer if this is something that He wants to have on your campus.
- Express your interest by e-mailing the Officer of Training and Recruitment firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Before a chapter can be started, the executive council must be in place. This means 6 ladies must commit to being on the executive council through the end of the chapter’s first year. These ladies will be the founding mothers of the chapter and they will all be required to attend the formal interview and leadership conference.
- Research how to start a new student organization at your school.
- Complete the New Chapter Application and submit it to the National Executive Council.
- Arrange a meeting with the National Gamma Alpha Lambda for a formal interview and to get the documents needed to start a chapter at your school.
- File the Gamma Alpha Lambda Bylaws and Constitution at your school; once your university has approved Gamma Alpha Lambda, call the Officer of Training and Recruitment.
- Attend the required Leadership Training Conference the summer before your chapter’s first rush.
