A Regional Chapter Where You Need One

The EFA’s regional chapters exist through the volunteer leadership efforts of EFA members in a particular city. Chapters have operated in the US and internationally over the years. New ones form as the interest arises. The pins on the map below represent our active chapters.

Chapter events are open to all members, guests of members, and freelancers interested in joining the EFA. Meetings and any other activities are listed on individual chapter pages. Contact the chapter organizer in your area for more information on participating. You must be a member to create an EFA chapter.

If you have questions about forming an EFA chapter, please visit this page and email the chapter development chairperson, Pia Kohler, at chapters@the-efa.org.

Below you’ll find a list of all current chapters, coordinators, and emails.
