OCIA has many licensed chapters in many different countries. Chapters serve an integral role within OCIA and can be of great benefit for anyone looking for mentorship in organic and sustainable farming practices. OCIA's many chapters provide such services as educational meetings, field days and demonstrations, and a valuable network of mentorship and support. They also work hard to promote the organic industry and help to educate about the organic certification process. Anyone may become a member of an OCIA chapter and help support OCIA and the organic industry as a whole.
