Local and Student HFES Chapters

Local Chapters

The Society's local chapters are formed by HFES members in geographical locations throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, China, and the Middle East.  Chapters provide forums for members to exchange information and ideas concerning human factors and ergonomics issues. HFES Local chapters hold meetings, publish newsletters, sponsor events and special activities, and provide annual reports and business meetings to their members, as well as to the Society at-large.  There is no prerequesite that chapter members are HFES members or vice versa.
