This page provides the established naming convention for naming the various Chapters participating in the OESChapters.org environment and website.
Chapters are named “ZZ999“, where:
ZZ is the two letter United States Post Office state code for the state jurisdiction.
999 is the Chapter number assigned by the Grand Chapter of the state jurisdiction involved. Include lead zeros as required to insure a three-digit number (ZZ999). If the state jurisdiction has four-digit Chapter numbers, then all chapters in that jurisdiction must use four-digit numbers (ZZ9999).
The Grand Chapter of each jurisdiction is numbered “000”, so California Grand Chapter would be CA000.
Poinsettia Chapter 287 in California would be CA287
