International Chapters

IGSHPA has international chapters established in Australia, China, India, Korea, and Sweden. For information on how to become involved in your local chapter, contact the chapter directly with the information below.

In addition to being an IGSHPA member, you may wish to join a chapter in your area. Activities and local chapter events can be a benefit to you professionally and help you stay informed and involved in the GSHP industry.

If no chapters exist in your location, you may be able to organize an IGSHPA Chapter. Chapters are growing both in the U.S. and in a number of international locations.
