EASA Chapters & Regions

Connect with your local community through EASA's local area networks. EASA supports 10 Regions comprised of 32 Chapters. Some larger Chapters have optionally created smaller units called Districts. Largely volunteer-driven, Chapters regularly organize training and networking events to engage the local member community.

Chapter members elect Regional Directors to represent their interests on EASA's Board of Directors. All EASA Active members must belong to a Chapter.
