Owing to our geography and large membership, WISTA USA is divided into TEN regional Chapters headed by the members identified below.  For the sake of convenience, these Chapters have been organized around metropolitan areas in which our members are concentrated, but they are not intended to be restrictive; we have members who live outside these areas, and any WISTA member is welcome to attend the events of any WISTA USA Chapter!  Please feel free to contact any one of these ladies if you have questions.
