Once the chapter has successfully been marketing and recruiting members, there needs to be an organizational structure to keep the operation running smoothly.
The first item of business is for the chapter to set a weekly meeting time that all members can attend. Not everyone will be there every week but typically Sunday or Monday evenings work best. There are typically fewer conflicts with class schedules, and it allows members to start the week off with AKL on their minds. Meetings must occur weekly, and all members must make every effort to attend for the chapter to operate effectively. A separate Executive Board meeting should also take place for executive officers.
