Unit Contacts


Unit Membership is open to all chapter members and they are able to attend any Unit Meeting; however, meeting locations and/or times may change. Please contact the individual Unit Leaders for more information.

If there is no existing Unit in your area, we will help you start a new Unit. Are there three or four other chapter members in your area who would want to be part of a Unit? If you don’t know the chapter members in your area, we can help you locate potential members.

There is no minimum (or maximum) size for a Unit. There can be more than one Unit in a geographic area. If you want to explore the potential to establish a Unit in your area, contact Heather Suri  at heather@pathwaysinaging.com
