Requirement for Active Chapter Status

In order to hold the title of Active, a chapter must have at least one student attending the conference every two years. This does not mean that a University/College Chapter has to provide a journal. The attending student(s) will be provided a table for their own materials for promotion.

Starting A TAGA Student Chapter

It is relatively easy to start a TAGA Student Chapter. If you are a student or an alumni of a school that you feel should consider starting or reestablishing a TAGA Student Chapter, please contact us at taga [at] printing.org for more information.

A TAGA Student Chapter will be recognized by following just a few requirements:

  • Provide the TAGA office with the name, address, website of your university or department so that we may include it on the list of "active" student chapters.
    • If you have a TAGA webpage, please also provide that link as well.
  • Select a Faculty Advisor for the chapter.
    • As students graduate every year, it is important to have a member of faculty to help carry the group through from year to year.
    • Provide the name and contact information of this person to the TAGA office.
    • The TAGA advisor should be an active TAGA member (Professional rate is $125).
    • The TAGA Membership Application is available here.
  • Publicize your chapter, hold your first meeting, and elect your officers (president, vice president, etc.).
  • Encourage membership in the National TAGA organization.
    • Student membership is only $50 per student (vs. $125 for professional members).
    • The TAGA Membership Application is available here.
    • TAGA membership has many benefits, including drastically discounted registration to the annual conference.
