The Mid-Hudson Chapter Board meets bi-monthly month (except July and August) at the home of one of the Board members.  Members are welcome to attend these meetings and to participate in all Mid-Hudson Chapter activities.  The Mid-Hudson Chapter also holds quarterly education workshops for which continuing education credits are available and has a peer-consultation group which meets on a monthly basis in Poughkeepsie.  You may check the Mid-Hudson Chapter Calendar for information about these Board meetings, educational programs and other Chapter activities.

The Chapter has a Disaster Preparedness Committee, Education Committee, Membership Committee, Newsletter Committee, Peer Consultation Committee and a Website Committee.  If you have any questions about a committee or wish to join a committee, you may contact the committee’s chairperson listed below.  You may check the Mid-Hudson Chapter Calendar for information about committee meetings and programs.
