Local SSE Chapters

The Society has a growing number of member-organized local chapters. Chapter meetings offer an opportunity to meet other people interested in SSE topics, give and hear presentations, and share ideas. Attendance is open to non-members. Typically a single member is in charge of organizing chapter events. For more information on a local chapter, simply get in touch with that chapter’s contact person.
