SSPI’s local Chapters and Affiliates provide members with opportunities to advance their careers through information sharing, outreach and professional networking in an informal social setting. Local meetings — which frequently include facility tours and presentations from industry leaders — are also premier educational opportunities. And it is through local participation that satellite professionals deepen those relationships and demonstrate their commitment to the industry.
