Chapters

During our early years, SEA had a large number of chapters - at one time as many as 40 -- representing our members in different agencies or geographical areas. However, over the years, that number has dwindled, so that now only a handful engage in any activities or even elect officers. The reasons are several: (a) SES is no longer a new system - it's now over 30 years old - and many of the original fears and problems have disappeared (although new ones are always emerging); (b) the original chapter founders have long since retired; (c) our present members are being asked to do many more things by their departments and agencies, with smaller staffs and budgets, and they are just too busy to lead a chapter; (d) President Bonosaro communicates on a bi-weekly basis with our members directly via email through her "Member Alerts," and there is therefore less necessity for the existence of chapters to disseminate news about the SES and SEA; (e) there is great fragmentation in what was formerly the "supergrade" corps, resulting in less commonality among senior executives in specific geographical areas, with local Federal Executive Boards serving as alternate meeting places for executives in these areas.

The following is a current list of (a) chapters that are functioning sufficiently to be called still "active" and (b) lists of our highly supportive members who have agreed to serve as SEA representatives or contacts in their individual agencies or departments or geographical areas.
