The process of establishing a local chapter begins when a new group sends the application "Application for Creating a new Local Chapter" to International Reception (

To complete the process, the following steps must be completed.

(*The steps marked with * only apply to "active" local chapters.)


By whom?

  • Application checked for completeness and uploaded in the Wiki
    (the association the LC is linked to must be listed in the Application as official, "active" LC)
  • responsible regional Local Chapter (LC) coordinator is informed, checks application and confirms within 14 days (if confirmation or rejection, or a status report is not received in 14 days, the application is considered approved)
  • If an ECG association exists in the LC's country, the LC must be assigned to that association.

(For LCs in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, it is checked in the Backoffice (ECG database) whether the persons listed in the applications are members. This is not done in other countries because the information is not available in the Backoffice. In these cases the application can be approved anyway.)

(Only LCs whose members are in the BackOffice get their own website at
