SABR approves new international chapter in Italy

SABR’s Board of Directors approved the formation of a new regional chapter this week.

The Italy Chapter, based in Sorrento, will serve SABR members in Italy. The chapter chair is Michele Pepe.

The Italy Chapter is the third new international chapter approved in the last few months, joining the Luis Castro/Latin America Chapter and the Korea Chapter.

New chapters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Rochester, New York, were also approved last year.

SABR’s 64 regional chapters cover 34 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.; plus international chapters in Canada (Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia), Japan, South Korea, Italy, Latin America and the United Kingdom.
