Contact LGHN to form a Regional Chapter in your area or state. A Regional Chapter is made up of multiple jurisdictions whose staff enjoy membership in both the LGHN and the Regional Chapter group. A jurisdiction may include an unlimited number of staff on the membership. Regional groups hold events and offer programming separately from what's offered by the LGHN.  Dues are determined by the forming board of the Regional Chapter.  Each jurisdiction that joins the chapter must designate a main contact person to handle dues payments and manage the list of members.
