FNGLA's Chapters are the lifeline of the Association. Through their representatives, FNGLA learns about the issues affecting different parts of the state and plans accordingly.

Chapter Structure

Chapters within FNGLA are divided geographically into 18 regions. FNGLA Chapter Presidents are elected by their Chapters to preside over Chapter meetings and to represent the Chapter on the state level. Chapters are organized geographically with one vote per Chapter on FNGLA's Board of Directors.

Members generally default into the Chapter designated for their area of Florida, however, members can request to be part of a different Chapter.
