Chapter History

The Great North West Coast District is comprised of chapters from BC, Yukon, and Alaska.  Here is a history of most of the Chapters and the Directors that stepped up to keep the Association going in their respective communities.  Some of the groups have since folded and the members either moved their association to other chapters nearby or have gone their separate ways.  Some of the information is not current.  If you can help us out with updated information, please contact the webmaster.
