Requirements for starting a chapter at your local dental school (membership) may be found within Article X of our bylaws.
The most important components of Art. X include the following:
(1) a petition for charter, signed by 2/3 of FULL faculty professors at your dental school AND also signed by 2/3 of the faculty that are currently members of OKU (there may be overlap);
(2) $50 filing fee (check, money order, etc) made payable to OKU Supreme Chapter; and
(3) a copy of your proposed local chapter bylaws.
Within 30 days of receiving a petition, OKU Supreme Chapter will seek votes from current member chapters. Voting responses are collected within reasonable time. Lastly, a decision will be submitted to the proposed chapter. Please be patient, the entire process can take up to several months to complete.
Please mail petition packets to:
