- Regional seminars designed to address specific topics of special interest such as Cost/Schedule Control Systems and Performance Measurement Systems are held in selected cities each year.
- Local Chapter meetings held either monthly or quarterly designed to bring top speakers from both local and National discussing current topics of concern and interest. Many chapters also feature education and training opportunities.
Applicants will be assigned to a local chapter where possible. If an applicant cannot be assigned, they will be members-at-large and encouraged to initiate interest to others in their area to start a new chapter. All benefits of membership are provided to members-at-large.
