Chapter Meetings

Chapter meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month. Our chapter covers the northwest Iowa counties of Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Osceola, O'Brien, Lyon, and Sioux. We meet from April to October. There are no meetings from November through March, to avoid winter weather and to accommodate those members that go south for the winter. We are 61 members strong and want you to join us.
