The State Branches provide a valuable opportunity for personal contact, networking, and peer support. The professional development activities are a major point of benefit of HIMAA membership and events are conducted by the State Branches.
Each HIMAA Branch has an elected Convenor and a Branch Committee to represent the members in that state.
You can contact your local branch for further information on activities or other relevant details:
