Sections are the geographically based subgroups of the Society throughout the U.S. and Canada and also includes a Section in Greece and abroad (International).  All members of SNAME belong to one of the 17 Sections that are led by a local Executive Committee and headed by the Section Chair.  Sections are further divided into one of five Regions, which include Atlantic North, Atlantic South, Central & Gulf, International, and Pacific.  Two elected Regional Vice Presidents oversee each Region.

SNAME recognizes sections that achieve high standards, provide outstanding member services, and deliver professional opportunities to its members through Super Section honors presented at the Society's Annual Meeting and Expo each year.
