In Rhode Island, we have eight chapters, each serving a community meeting on different days and times. There is no requirement to join the chapter near your home; some people chose a chapter near their work, one that meets on the day that fits their schedule and some chose the chapter closer to their family and friends. Each chapter focuses resources on different community projects and has meetings that include interesting programs and often combine events. With each chapter having its own personality finding the right chapter can be a fun process, and in the smallest state, can be easy!
