A Regional Chapter is made up of multiple jurisdictions whose staff enjoy membership in both the LGHN and the Regional Chapter group. A jurisdiction may include an unlimited number of staff on the membership. Regional groups may hold events and offer programming separately from what's offered by the LGHN. Dues are determined by the forming board of the Regional Chapter.
A Local Chapter is a single jurisdiction membership with an unlimited number of members from the organization. Pricing is determined by the number of employees working for the organization. Please contact LGHN before completing the Local Chapter application. APPLICATION
With any chapter membership, each jurisdiction must designate a main contact to handle payment of the annual dues and maintain the list of members.
To join your organization as a new member under one of these Regional Chapters, select from the list of Regional Chapters below.
