Charter Formation

We are pleased to invite you to establish a local State chapter of United Community Development Corporation (United CDC) in your area. Chapter development unites local diversity officers/departments with community diversity businesses as a common purpose and enables the profession to advance its goals in a meaningful, and powerful, direction.

United CDC 's network of affiliate chapters provides a gathering place for education, roundtable discussion, conversation and problem solving at the state and national level. United CDC helps its chapters get started by providing a Formation Guide that explains the progressive process of chapter formation requirements to begin formal recognition as a Chapter.
