ASCP has 24 chapters and 33 affiliate organizations serving our membership in the United States and Canada. ASCP’s membership is located in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and 18 countries. For ASCP Student Chapters click here.
Chapters are formed by ASCP members within a state or country and are a vital link in the ASCP network. A strong, effective chapter is a powerful voice in representing the profession at the local and state level, and can provide some of the most tangible ASCP services directly to members.
ASCP members are not only dedicated on a national level, but are very active within their own regional and/or state chapters. As a result, ASCP meetings are held throughout the country. To learn more about regional and/or state meetings in your area please check out the Events Calendar.

Affiliated organizations are separate professional organizations that have formed an informal relationship with ASCP, manage their own affairs, control their own membership categories, and promote consultant and senior care pharmacy to other professional and health care organizations.
