Why Join an SfN Chapter?
SfN’s more than 150 chapters worldwide offer members opportunities to connect with their local colleagues and community year-round with activities focused on career development, public outreach, and advocacy.
- Career Development: Chapters foster scientific collaboration among researchers through local meetings, lectures, and workshops. They also play an important role in helping neuroscientists at all career stages network and learn from one another.
- Public Outreach: Chapters engage local communities in learning about the wonders of the brain by hosting outreach events such as fairs, Brain Bees, classrooms visits, and more during Brain Awareness Week and throughout the year.
- Advocacy: Chapter members advocate for robust science funding and favorable research policies by participating in meetings and hosting lab tours with local lawmakers.
