Regional Chapters enable the Society to expand its scope by providing a forum for professionals who serve adolescents in diverse capacities in a geographically limited area. Many Chapters hold regular educational seminars, and act as resources for public education, or referral of adolescents and their families, and for advocacy of important local and regional issues. Chapter presidents meet annually and make recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Society.

Membership in the national organization is not a prerequisite for membership in a Regional Chapter; however we encourage Regional Chapter members who are not SAHM members to join.

All chapter members have access to communities in My SAHM, where they are invited to network, share documents, keep in touch and stay updated on chapter activities. Members: log into My SAHM and look for My Communities in the menu.
