Establishing a New NGMA Chapter

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 future chapter, and the process is reasonably simple.

To get started, contact NGMA Membership Team.

NGMA Chapters Speakers Bank

NGMA Chapters are an invaluable resource to our members that provide them the opportunity to connect, network and learn about the topics that are relevant in their field.

To get started, contact NGMA Membership Team.
