The SIA encourages national SIA members to join one or more of our local chapters. Local chapters offer additional Industrial Archeology programs, networking, publications, local tours, regular meetings, seminars and newsletters. Please contact any of the listed chapters if you are interested in joining in their activities. You can join more than one chapter. Each chapter is run independently of the national SIA and may require additional dues to help defray the costs of their operations.

SIA members are encouraged to get together with other SIA members and help form a new chapter when no chapter exists nearby. The rules for forming and operating a chapter are outlined in our Bylaws and in the guidelines pdf below. If you would like to investigate the possibility of forming a new chapter, please contact Ron Petrie at
