Each chapter develops its own unique combination of activities, traditions, projects and schedules of events.
Local chapters take on the flavor of their membership and monitor local issues of importance. Meetings may be breakfasts, pot-luck dinners in hangars or dinner out at a restaurant. Guest Speakers are a common part of many chapter meetings. Some chapters have dues, others do not and instead have fundraising events to cover chapter expenses. Members need only have an interest in aviation to join and the rest is determined by the chapters themselves.
You must be a member of the State OPA to be a member of a local chapter.
