Yes, free, and it depends on city and your definition of benefit.

In the last city I lived in, the chapter was pretty inactive and it felt like the chapter board was just "going through the motions." The chapter in my current city is one of the top chapters for my school. I can't say there's really a professional benefit, but more of a social benefit, especially post-pandemic. It's a fun way to get out of the house, reconnect with some folks, and meet some new people.

I’m in IT in a large corp and I don’t know what to do. I’m the systems engineer and I planned around what I thought was a straight forward concept.
