ISJP members are spread over the world, with some on almost every continent. Therefore it is not practical to hold regular general meetings. But the the society encourages the formation of autonomous regional chapters which do hold regular meetings and sponsor or take part in exhibitions. Currently we have chapters in London (United Kingdom), Copenhagen (Denmark), Washington DC (USA) and Southern California (USA)
It does not matter how many ISJP members get together to form a chapter. But if members in you area would like to have a chapter, please let the Secretary know.
