We wish to express our intent to start an OSA Student Chapter at ___________. The purpose of our chapter is described as follows in our "mission statement."
“The Chapter shall enrich its members through professional networking, and by providing career development and technical programming. The Chapter will also raise awareness of optics and science learning through participation in events at its institution and 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 Student Chapter at the [name of institution].
