The PEA Chapters are the heart of our Association. They are naturally aligned groups that share similar professional goals, skills, attributes and direction — and so they bargain with employers as separate entities working underneath the PEA umbrella.
You can find out more about each Chapter by exploring their pages. But bear in mind there is some content that is available to logged-in members only.
