The chapter began training its first class of 11 students in April 2005 and graduated all by April 2006. By 2012 we have grown to over 100 active members, and have trained over 190 individuals. Our training is normally held at Windedale, near Round Top, in Fayette County. This is a central location for the five counties. Training sessions for new members begin in January and are complete each year by the end of May. Training sessions are usually Monday evenings, 6 – 9 PM each week.
Chapter membership meetings are held every odd numbered month on the third Saturday, 9 AM – noon. Typically these meetings are followed by a program open to the public.
