Affiliation with a local chapter is available to every member at no additional charge. All chapter members receive additional member benefits exclusively through that chapter. Each monthly chapter meeting provides member benefits in all three areas — education, resources and networking.
If you are a member of a chapter, you will be able to vote in elections, attend all monthly meetings, participate in chapter events and receive the chapter’s newsletter and email communication. If you are not a member of that chapter (as a member of another chapter or as a member at large), you may attend up to two meetings as a guest before being required to submit a completed membership application prior to attending the third meeting.
Members may affiliate with the chapter of their choice, regardless of location. You may choose to join more than one chapter, but each chapter membership must be affiliated with its own national membership.
The Chapter Websites and Info section on the right lists all of our chapters and features a link to each chapter’s website where you can view the chapter’s event calendar, see their member benefits, or contact chapter leaders. Our chapters are organized into seven geographical regions, each represented by a regional liaison on our national board of directors. Click on the Chapters by Region section on the right to see how the chapters are organized.
SGMP has 20 chapters across the country. If you are in an area of the country that is not currently represented by an SGMP chapter, please visit the How to Form a Chapter section at left for guidelines and details on that process.
Our chapters play a significant part of the SGMP experience as the face of our Society. Questions? Just ask us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
