Wise Charters & Chapters


WISE is a membership organization with a purpose to unite all organizations of whatever kind that use the administrative principles of Mr. Hubbard for improving their own organizations and society at large.

Its membership is divided into geographical “regions.” The responsibility and authority for administering the membership in a given region is bestowed through the assignment of a “charter” to a group of at least three WISE members verified to be of unimpeachable ethical standards and proven track record as businesspersons. These groups are known as “WISE Charter Committees”. The word charter is defined in the Encarta Dictionary as: “An authorization from a central organization to establish a local branch or chapter.”

A local branch or chapter of WISE is called an Effective Management Association or “EMA”.

The purpose of the Effective Management Organization is: TO HELP BUILD A BETTER WORLD THROUGH BUILDING BETTER BUSINESSES.
