Local Chapters

The Society's local chapters are groups formed by HFES members in geographical locations throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, China, and the Middle East. The Chapters provide forums in which members to exchange information and ideas on human factors and ergonomics issues. HFES Local chapters hold regular meetings, publish newsletters, sponsor events and special activities, and provide annual reports and business meetings to their group members, as well as to the Society at-large.
