Local Chapters





Local Chapters meet periodically, usually 3-4x/year or more. Usually there's a small membership fee (~6-8$/year for your household) to fund events. Meetings take place in member's homes and local venues of interest. You're encouraged to contact the Chapter Officers in your area to find out when/where their next meeting will be - and attend as a guest to try them out.

Also use people in your area for your specific questions you couldn't find on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
