Chapters expand public awareness and support for the research, preservation and conservation of grave markers and places of burial. The main purpose of state or regional chapters is to work as local extensions of the national AGS and to be able to offer meeting and workshop opportunities at the local level. State chapters operate, not as independent organizational entities, but as local (and, in certain cases, regional) bases from which members will work to expand interest and membership in the AGS.  For upcoming chapter events, click the button below:
