In addition to its international presence, IALEP sponsors a number of regional chapters. Designed to promote local collaboration through chapter meetings, training, and other activities, these chapters are semi-autonomous organizations chartered by IALEP. The frequency and format of meetings and the activities of the chapters vary widely. Whatever the activity level of each particular chapter, all enhance and expand the network of law enforcement planners.
The chapters are represented on the IALEP Board of Directors by a current or past chapter president elected each year by the current chapter presidents.
Membership in regional IALEP chapters offers opportunities to network and learn at the local level. All members have an optional choice of membership in IALEP’s regional Chapters in both the United States and Canada. Dues and activities for each chapter vary, as each chapter is operated independently by its membership. Some chapters conduct formal training conferences, while others have more informal meetings to exchange ideas. You can apply for chapter membership at the same time you apply to the international organization.
