New England Chapter
Originally founded as the Massachusetts GPA Chapter, it was first formed in the fall of 2004. Since its inception, the chapter continues to grow with members who serve in school districts, healthcare settings, higher education and other non-profit organizations. Meetings are usually held at Minuteman Senior Services in Bedford, MA which is easily accessible from major highways and offers plenty of "free and available" parking - not always the case in the Boston area! We sometimes meet in other regional locations as well.
As of October 2017 the chapter expanded to include Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut and renamed as the New England Chapter.
The New England Chapter meets throughout the year for professional development and networking events.
New members are always welcome. Guests are invited to attend a Chapter meeting; those who wish to return may either join GPA or pay $10 per meeting. Chapter dues are $25 per year, and one must be a member of GPA National to join.
The New England Chapter strives to provide quality professional development, networking, and leadership opportunities to our members and grant professional colleagues across the state!
