Your branch will be dictated by your membership address. The Branches are as follows:

Each Branch meets at least four (4) times per annum, ideally with at least one face-to-face meeting. Outside of these meetings, you will expect to spend an average of four hours per month working on one of the many branch activities.

Working on a branch committee offers numerous professional development benefits. Individuals gain valuable experience in leadership and teamwork by collaborating with diverse professionals, which enhances their ability to manage and motivate teams effectively. The committee work often involves tackling complex issues and problem-solving, which sharpens critical thinking and decision-making skills. Additionally, members can expand their professional network, opening up opportunities for mentorship, partnerships, and career advancement. Exposure to different perspectives and best practices within the industry promotes continuous learning and innovation. Ultimately, this involvement demonstrates a commitment to professional growth and industry contribution, making individuals more competitive and well-rounded in their careers.
