ISPE's Evolution and History Timeline

ISPE’s Affiliates and Chapters are the “front door” of our organization. Well over 90% of ISPE’s Members are associated with one of the 39 groups around the world.

From the very beginning, ISPE’s founders imagined an International Society. So it was natural that local groups would form in areas of high industry concentration. How did it all get started? ISPE’s Evolution and History Timeline ( 155 KB) shows the journey and the milestones that have built the Society. 

FUN FACT: New Jersey was the very first local group to welcome Members and offer programming. Please join us in congratulating the ISPE New Jersey Chapter, which marked its 25th Anniversary on Saturday, 14 January with a gala celebration. Congratulations, New Jersey!
