National, Regions, and Chapters

IPMA-HR NATIONAL, REGIONS, AND CHAPTERS

To inform and guide IPMA-HR members, the Executive Council follows this practice:

It shall be the practice of the International Public Management Association for Human Resources to encourage the organization of the local Chapters whenever the stated objectives of the Association will be advanced thereby. The Association is primarily an organization of agencies, individuals, and affiliate members, and a grant of authority to organize Chapters shall not affect the direct relationship existing between the Association and its members. Chapters shall have the right to undertake a program of activity for the benefit of Chapter members, but any such program shall always be in harmony with the program and activities of the Association.
