• ISA Student Section Formation

    Any faculty member, student of a college or technical institution, or ISA section, may establish a Student Section.

    To establish a Student Section:

    • Identify potential leadership - This includes a faculty advisor, interested students, and when possible representatives from a local section.
    • Determine interest in forming a student section - Meet with the potential leaders to determine level of interest and to get a commitment from a faculty member to serve as advisor.
    • Confirm intent - Contact the district vice president and ISA staff of the intent to form a student section
