FCP, Inc. RECOGNIZES local groups of five or more members as chapters. These local groups are permitted a great deal of autonomy in directing their own operations, as long as they subscribe to the goals and stated purposes of CFCP.

The current Chapters of CFCP, Inc. are listed here in alphabetical order with a general city or area description for each of them. The abbreviation following each one helps to identify the chapter, and is used after the name of an individual.

Each year, several members choose to become affilate members of a second chapter. In addition, about 35 members choose not to designate a Chapter affiliation, and are thus counted as Members at Large. And several historic chapters have been closed because their membership has fallen below the minimum number of five.

CFCP, Inc. welcomes the formation of new chapters. We have provided ideas and suggestions on starting your own Chapter in answer to the fourth question on our FAQ page.

For more information about existing chapters, or if you are interested in establishing a new chapter in your area, please contact ChapterHost@ChaparralPoets.org.
