AER chapters are located in the United States and Canada and provide member benefits at the local level, including continuing education, conferences, committee projects, and other networking opportunities. Membership in AER chapters is free to individuals and organizations when they join AER.
AER chapters are broken down into six districts for voting purposes. Each district elects a representative to the AER International Board.
Chapter presidents serve on the AER Council of Chapter Presidents and elect a serving president to sit on the AER Board of Directors each biennium.
