Chapters Represent the Grassroots of NGMA

When you join NGMA you are automatically enrolled in your local chapter. As a chapter member you will be notified of upcoming Chapter meetings and events. Chapter meetings play an important role in fulfilling our association’s mission by educating and connecting members. Our Chapters provide targeted education opportunities, local issue updates, networking, and more!

Why Start a New Chapter?

Chapters are a prime part of the delivery system of membership benefits and are therefore vital to the success of NGMA. Chapter activities are informative, stimulating, and fun. About 20% of all members, however, don’t currently belong to a chapter. Why? Usually, one main reason stands out above others - there isn’t a chapter in the area. Starting a new chapter may be one of the best things you can do, for you as well as the other members of your area, and the process is reasonably simple.

To get started, contact Regais Wilson, Senior Manager, Membership and Chapters
