Members join a local chapter by first becoming a member of the State Association. 

SFA is proud to host 18 chapters across New York State. Regular chapter involvement in monthly meetings and events provides a forum for the exchange of timely information, building strong professional relationships, and opportunities for advancement in your field and professional organization. Many chapters have monthly guest speakers and hold annual custodial workshops.

Topics might include:

Rescue standards
Irrigation of athletic fields
Staff ratios
Lead abatement
Mold remediation
Preparing for summer projects
State regulations
Best cleaning practices
Roof maintenance and repair
Boiler optimization
Conflict resolution
Employee motivation

Whatever the specifics, chapter participants exchange information on pressing local issues, and serve as a source of mutual support. Chapters also provide opportunities to learn about new vendor products and services, and connect with the state Association.
