Ideas and Guidelines for naming your Project Semicolon chapter.
Naming Your Chapter
Project Semicolon chapters are community-driven and are named after the local area in which the community it will serve is situated. Find out how to pick a name that fits your community.
Chapter naming conventions
All Project Semicolon chapter names follow the same convention: a name beginning with Project Semicolon, followed by a location-based descriptor such as the official name of a city, neighborhood, street etc.
Your chapter name identifies the host community and lets the world know where the local efforts you’re working on are coming from. It also helps viewers connect with the chapter and understand it’s unique space in the organization.
Project Semicolon chapters cannot be named after:
States or Provinces
Proprietary names or commercially-owned developments
Organizations (such as corporations, nonprofits and NGOs)
How to name your Chapter
Your Project Semicolon chapter name refers to the community that you will serve. The name should be relevant and meaningful to your community.
When thinking of your chapter’s name, consider a neighborhood, street, river, lake or public square name that represents the community best.
The Project Semicolon chapter name you nominate must be local and specific to your area within your town or city.
If your chapter is for your university or school community, your chapter can be named after the school or university. (Note: Try connecting to the counselor’s office at your school for information about how a Project Semicolon Chapter could benefit the school.) Remember, having support and a good team will insure the most effective chapter on your campus.
