At the 2013 Annual Meeting the membership voted to amend the constitution of The Chandler Family Association to allow the establishment of chapters within the association. To date, the Executive Committee has approved the establishment of chapters for DNA groups 3, 5, 8, 9, 13, 15, 18 and 27, plus a sub-group of DNA group 7A designated as Chapter 7A JRR-Joseph. (See links to the Chapter pages below.) We strongly encourage chapter formation, because we believe this is the best way to expand the knowledge of a genetic Chandler family. If you are interested in forming a CFA chapter, you can initiate the process by contacting any member of the Executive Committee. If you don’t know what CFA DNA Group you belong to, please contact any member of the Executive Committee.
