When you join the association, you also join a local branch or twig. If there is no branch or twig nearby, and you don’t have the time to help start one up, you can join as a member at large. To learn about having this affiliation, visit our Members at Large page.

To find out more about a branch or twig near you, visit the branch’s website and check out their events, meeting times, etc. (Please note that many branches are still transitioning to their new web pages, and sometimes a branch’s site will not yet be live. Please bear with us – moving is never an easy process!)
