Starting a Local Chapter

iaedp's mission is to bring together eating disorder treatment providers, across all disciplines, to collaborate and inspire one another. Chapters drive this mission on the local level - connecting members with local peer support, resources, and continuing education.

iaedp currently has over thirty chapters. We are adding more all the time, but if you don't already have a chapter in your area, why not start one? Starting a chapter comes with many benefits.

  1. Recognition as an eating disorder professional and as a leader - locally, nationally, even internationally
  2. Support, networking, education, and the buddy referral system with local professionals
  3. Discounts on iaedp membership and symposium
  4. Co-branding with a prestigious organization - chapters benefit from the marketing power of iaedp
  5. Support and guidance from other chapter presidents and the Chapter Director - powerful tools which not only help you run a chapter, but translate into running a practice as well

Local member collaboration through chapters continues to drive awareness, education, and quality. Your involvement will help shape our future and the lives of those we serve. Starting a chapter is as easy as:

  1. Get together with four professional colleagues/iaedp members in your area who would be interested in starting a chapter and serving on the local board. Find ten more people interested in a local chapter, and you've established interest! All that's left is the paperwork...
  2. Send a letter of intent, statement of purpose, and application (along with a $50 application fee) to iaedp Headquarters.
  3. Begin the process of completing non-profit corporation papers, which is done with the guidance of iaedp Headquarters.
