You’ll get the most out of your GBA membership by engaging with other members so we encourage you to join a chapter or working group to connect with other members.

Chapters hold local meetings around the world for GBA professionals and people interested in blockchain technology. You may see the list of the members involved by going to the Chapter page in the navigation menu under Blockchain Resources.

Working Groups gather members from around the world to discuss best practices and potential use cases on a wide variety of subjects. You may see the list of chapters and the members involved by going to the Working Groups page in the navigation menu under Blockchain Resources.

locate groups

When you visit a group page you will have the ability to see the members of the group as well as a description of what each group is about. You may also see the group forum, which is a discussion board for the members of each group. As a GBA member you may view the conversion, but you must join the chapter or working group in order to participate.

Joining a group will:

  • Give you access to the group discussion forums
  • Allow you to receive email updates from the Group Administrator, such as meeting notices.
  • Include your profile on the group homepage under the list of members
  • List the chapter or working groups on your profile under the Groups tab.

If you have questions about whether or not a group is right for you, feel free to reach out to the group administrator. You will find a list of administrators on the right hand side of the screen under the heading GBA Admins.

*Note: A GBA Administrator is present in every group for general support, but we recommend reaching out to the individuals listed for more details on the group activities.

To join a group, click the Join Group button on top of the page, next to the page icon.
