OSA Local Section Statement of Intent

Dear ___________,

We wish to express our intent to start an OSA Local Section at ___________. The purpose of our chapter is described as follows in our "mission statement."

"The Local Section shall enrich its members through professional networking, and by providing career development and technical programming. The Local Section will also raise awareness of optics and science learning through participation in events in the local community and through youth education outreach activities such as science fairs, lab tours and classroom demonstrations."

We hope that this letter of intent serves the mission of the Optical Society of America and that it will be a strong basis for our new Local Section at the [name of locale].
