IARW North American Chapter Meetings

ChapterMap2015-10-21What’s a Chapter Meeting?

IARW North American Chapter Meetings are grassroots meetings held annually throughout North America.

In one or two day events, chapter members address common legislative, regulatory, and operational hurdles and share proven business solutions. Each Chapter Meeting is different, but each one provides targeted programming on the issues and trends impacting your region.

Chapter meetings are hosted by regional chapters. View a map of the regional chapters.

Who Should Attend?

Chapter Meetings are typically designed with public refrigerated warehouse operators in mind. These meetings are perfect for warehouse managers and upper management.


A wide range of sponsorships are available to IARW Associate Members. Sponsors capitalize on the targeted, regional marketing opportunities at Chapter Meetings. Learn more by following the links below or contact IARW at
