Chapters

GPA believes that the heart of the organization lies in its chapters. Chapters afford our membership an opportunity to be a part of GPA at the local level. Chapters offer our membership a local venue in which to network and to exchange ideas, methodologies and resources. Chaptering ensures local involvement and self-determination of its members, and guides the National Office toward an organizational platform that truly reflects its membership and the profession. Local chapters and the national office share a common goal and support each others' initiatives. By working together at both the local and the national level, we can better move our profession forward.

To find out if there is a Chapter near you, see map below.
Please Note: In order to join a Chapter, you MUST have a Primary Membership (ie. Professional, Entry-Level, Student, Retiree, Legacy, and Organizational).
