    Regional Chapters

Stay connected with your favorite place and mingle with other graduates through the chapter nearest you. Note your chapter leaders' names, also. These regional volunteers share WC news, coordinate events, and serve as great resources for new alumni in the area. Don’t be afraid to reach out!
