Unlike several other countries that run state as well as city chapters, TZM India has only city chapters listed so far. Primarily because most Indian states are fairly large in area, and it is unlikely that coordinators/activists would conduct any statewide activities where people would have to travel long distances to meet up. It makes more sense logistically to hold city meetings and activities instead. However, if you are from a small state where travel between cities/towns is not a problem, and if you feel you wish to take responsibility for the entire state as well as coordinate the city chapters that fall under that state, please mail us with your specifics and we’ll see how best to set up your state chapter.
You can use a lot of free tools on the internet to power your chapter with a website like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Weebly or even a Facebook Page. If you'd like to have a chapter name like http://ahmedabad.tzmindia.com send the IP address or CNAME record details of your website to info [at] tzmindia [dot] com
Apart from powering your chapter with a website you may also want to have a place to
- Send Announcements to your chapter members with information related to events in your city and
- Discuss activities in your city.
For both options you can use free communication tools on the internet such as:
Note: As a chapter coordinator, you need to protect the user’s privacy. Meaning do not give out the list of email addresses to anyone that asks for the list of registered users on your chapter website. However, if a person would like to conduct a meeting or event in your city, then you can request him to provide the following details.
- Name of person
- Phone Number (Mobile)
- Email Address
- Date / Time / Venue of meet or event
- Agenda or description of meet or event
As a chapter coordinator you can then send an announcement to the people registered in your city so the individual can decide if he or she would like to attend that meet. This is crucial for you to understand and protect the users privacy.

With Facebook and YouTube you can post the pictures and videos of events that you hold in your city. Pictures and videos of TZM events and activities help bring the movement to reality. When people see these pictures and videos, their belief is greatly strengthened. This furthers the realization that TZM is not about a bunch of people talking online. It is about serious local grassroots action being taken to bring about global transformation.
