How to Start a Chapter

Chapters are a valued part of the Society - where advancing our mission at a local and regional level often happens. It is where fire protection engineers and other allied professionals in the field, share knowledge and grow a greater understanding of the profession. As a global Society, we welcome interested groups of fire protection engineers to gather in new local areas to form chapters. Don't see a chapter in your area, look here.
