ESTA Chapters

ESTA understands the necessity of meeting with members of the industry on a frequent basis. Each ESTA chapter elects its own board of directors to carry out the organization's objective on a local level, providing members with programs, events, and vital networking opportunities. ESTA National and ESTA Chapters collaborate to execute organization-wide projects like the EsportsNext Conference.

You can attend all chapter activities and subscribe to numerous chapter mailings as part of your ESTA membership.
