Regional Chapters

EERI Regional Chapters offer the opportunity for members to interact with other professionals in their area to promote the study of earthquake hazards and advance mitigation activities that benefit the region. EERI relies on its chapters to implement its mission at the local level. Find out more about your local chapter by visiting its website, reading about chapter activities in their annual reports, or using the contact information below to reach out to its leadership.
