Included are guidelines for getting started, setting goals and objectives, becoming incorporated, structuring bylaws and dues, electing officers, establishing committees, and recruiting and retaining employees. A series of short guidelines on miscellaneous topics is also included. The importance of organizing a unified voice that will enable providers to confront important issues and make positive changes is emphasized. Sample bylaws and articles of incorporation are appended.
