The St. Louis Regional Chapter of ISPI was founded in 1999 and is focused on further advancement and application of innovative performance improvement practices in the St. Louis area.

The chapter holds monthly meetings, and sponsors events throughout the year to provide practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to enhance workplace performance
We are an affiliate of the International Society for Performance Improvement, which provides many services to the local chapters, as well as being an incredible organization supporting HPT in myriads of ways.
