Student Chapter Resources
The purpose of CPFI student chapters should be to motivate and equip pharmacy students to practice faith in Jesus Christ in their personal and professional lives. The purpose is also to encourage and develop an active Christian witness and evangelism through prayer, Bible study, outreach, and fellowship. The chapter should be evangelical in outlook and purpose; and activities consistent with this biblical view are encouraged and promoted. These chapters are an opportunity for Christian student to have a common affiliation with like-minded students of their school of pharmacy and also with those of other schools of pharmacy throughout the US and abroad.
To be recognized as a student chapter, you will need to provide a written request to CPFI stating your intent to start a chapter. The Application Form for Student Chapter Groups needs to be completed, providing the names of upcoming officers and/or key people in your chapter, the name of your advisor, as well as the name of the chapter and school name. A Chapter Update Form will need to be submitted online annually to help us have current contact information of active student chapters and for accurate mailing and webpage display. Although a structured formal chapter is not a requirement, the contact information of the advisor and at least one student is necessary. A student chapter may use CPFI in the name of their chapter. The local chapter will need to develop their own bylaws. See our Bylaw Template for sample bylaws. All of the student chapter forms and many helpful suggestions for building a strong student chapter are included in the CPFI Student Chapter Manual.
All CPFI student chapters are requested to submit an annual chapter update form to update chapter officer and advisor information and provide any other relevant chapter updates. This form may be filled out by a chapter officer or an advisor and should be submitted after officer elections, at the start of the fall term, or whenever there is a change in contact information. Submitting your update form allows your chapter to stay up to date on National Student Council events and allows CPFI to have your current chapter information on our website.

Each chapter will have total autonomy and will be responsible for all of their activities. Since each chapter is autonomous, totally independent and responsible for itself, each student chapter will be different in make up and activities. Some chapters meet for fellowship as much as once a week and others as little as once a semester. Other activities may include Bible study, prayer, singing, special guest speakers, potlucks and/or discussions of bioethical issues, etc. Groups can range from very informal, such as having an occasional activities/meeting, to a very structured organized group that has officers and a set of by-laws as established by the chapter. Student chapters desiring to raise funds and/or establish a checking account will be responsible for developing its own incorporation. The best source for information on how to accomplish this would be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

While CPFI encourages all pharmacy students to become actively involved in an student chapter, membership in a chapter does not automatically confer membership in CPFI. Therefore, we also encourage each pharmacy student to join CPFI individually for a student membership contribution of $30 per year and completing the CPFI Student Membership New Application or Renewal.
