Chapters can be viewed most significantly as “branches” of MELTA, and are initiated to act as outreach centres so that MELTA members can meet and carry out activities according to their own local needs. All MELTA Chapters come under the MELTA Chapters Bureau that is headed by the Director of Chapters. Each MELTA Chapter is administered by a Chapter Committee, which comprises:
i) A Chapter Chairperson,
ii) A secretary,
iii) A treasurer and,
iv) Two (2) committee members.
The MELTA Committee appoints MELTA Chapter Chairpersons on the recommendation of the Director of Chapters, after elections at the MELTA Chapter level.
