ASPET has three regional chapters that provide opportunities, particularly for students, to meet at regional venues to discuss their research. Poster competitions for students and postdoctoral fellows are a feature of the regional chapter meetings.
The regional chapters are distinct entities from ASPET and members of a regional chapter are not necessarily members of ASPET.
