Start a Chapter

If you are a current student, faculty member, or graduate of a COAMFTE accredited program that does not already have a Delta Kappa chapter, you can get more information about starting a chapter by emailing

The overall process is simple. Each new chapter must complete a charter application, submit the $250 application fee, and set a date for your installation. An installing officer will work directly with you to shepherd you through the installation process and even be on-site for your installation ceremony.

To maintain active status, each chapter must hold an induction ceremony at least once a year and submit an annual report of chapter activities.
