GPUG Regional Chapters provide an opportunity for members to gather together in and around areas where they live and work. We comb through our contacts lists to invite people within a few hours drive of a meeting site, but please don't hesitate to attend a meeting outside of your geographical area; any member can attend as many regional chapter meetings as they like. If there is no region near you and you are interested in establishing one, send us an email via the Contact Us page.
Each Regional Chapter is led by local leaders. Meeting formats vary across each Chapter, including times, topics, and possible attendance charges to cover extra costs. Please refer to each Regional Chapter event notice for information on the meeting details.
NEW! Attend Regional Chapters and be eligible to receive CPE credits! All GPUG members have the opportunity to receive CPE credits after attending meetings with CPE eligible topics. CPE eligible topics will be designated by an asterisk (*) in our materials going forward.
GPUG appreciates your membership. GPUG makes investments in managing Regional Chapter meetings and as a result, there is a $20 registration fee for basic members to attend the meetings. GPUG uses registration reports to plan ahead and finalize meeting logistics. At this time, we are unable to offer any refunds to those who are unable to attend the meeting after they have registered.

Chapters are forming and evolving all the time. If no Chapter currently exists in your region, we encourage you to let us know about your interest and we'll help kick start the process of initiating a new Chapter.
