CNU Chapters

The Charter of the New Urbanism places a special emphasis on the region, recognizing each region's uniqueness and the need for a tailored approach to implementing New Urbanism locally. CNU chapters provide a local framework for collaboration to restore individual metropolitan areas into coherent regions. They bring the principles of the Charter home, translating them for the local context and providing new ways to take part in the movement through public and professional education and networking.

CNU member dues include membership in your local chapter, if there is one in your area. Chapter Organizing Committees and Interest Groups do not have separate membership programs. Visit the membership page to join CNU.
