Annual Meetings

The Chandler Family Association holds an annual meeting for the purposes of sharing research, taking care of association business, and socializing among the membership. The location of the annual meeting is moved each year in order to make it accessible to members in different geographical areas.

Stay up-to-date on upcoming annual meetings at the Town Crier section of the Home page.

2018: Little Rock, Arkansas, September 14-15

Mark your calendar now! Plan to join us in Little Rock, Arkansas, Friday and Saturday, September 14 and 15. Our headquarters hotel will be the Little Rock Marriott, 3 Statehouse Plaza.

If you are flying in, there is a complimentary shuttle from the airport. It arrives at the airport 15 minutes before the hour and 15 minutes after the hour. No reservations needed.

As usual, Friday will be reserved for researching and sharing. Saturday’s schedule will include our annual business meeting plus more research and sharing. The CFA Library will be available both days.

On Friday evening we will travel as a group to nearby Benton, Arkansas, to enjoy the 100-foot buffet at Browns Country Store and Restaurant. The cost will be $35 per person including transportation. You can pay now for your group to attend the dinner.

Please complete the registration form either by printing and mailing it to Helen or by copying and pasting (page 1 only) into an email, OR just read the form and sent the necessary information to Helen by email. Members are welcome at any meeting without registration, but it helps with our planning if you let us know you’re coming.

Family Gatherings

If you’ve been into the DNA Project or Genealogy sections of the CFA site, you probably already know that there are several active “Chapters” that bring together people within specific genetic lines.

Chandlers hold other events, such as celebrating milestone birthdays or anniversaries, or just getting together to share stories and catch-up. If this information is passed along to us, we will add photos and other details on the Chandler Gatherings page. Send your photos and information to Eileen at
