The following requirements are also outlined in section IX of the NCGP's bylaws.
Any group of North Carolina residents, including students, faculty, and staff, on a high school, college, or university campus in the state may form a campus-wide affiliate of the North Carolina Green Party (NCGP). To do this, the group must
1) consist of at least five members,
2) commit to support and uphold the Green Party's Ten Key Values,
3) elect officers,
4) hold at least two publicly announced meetings in a six-month period, and
5) establish bylaws that define membership, campus, principles of governance, and its decision-making process—and the chapter's bylaws must be in compliance with the NCGP's own bylaws.
Documentation of the attainment of these requirements should be sent to the NCGP's Coordinating Committee's secretary as an application to become an affiliated local chapter of the state party. See the Affiliation with the NCGP section below.
