Local Chapters

SAF membership comes in three categories: National, State, and Local Chapter. California is currently home to two State Chapters: Northern California and Southern California. Many members are also assigned a Local Chapter. For non-students, Local Chapters are assigned based on the zip code you reside in (though can be changed by contacting the National Office). Student members are members of their student SAF chapter. A map of the Local Chapter breakdown for California can be found below. Note: not all areas are assigned a Local Chapter. Places that are blank or assigned only a State Chapter do not have a Local Chapter.
