Being part of a PFLAG chapter comes with lots of successes and many questions. Our work is not easy. However, there is one person who can help your chapter navigate the challenges and celebrate the victories: your Regional Director. Each volunteer Regional Director oversees several states in one of thirteen Regions. Regional Directors work to start new chapters and trouble shoot the inevitable concerns that are a part of our work. You should know your Regional Director! We are here to help. So come spend time with your Regional Director, and other chapter leaders from your state and region, and let’s talk. Bring your questions, your concerns, your hopes, and your successes. Your Regional Director won’t have all the answers, but the best ideas start with a conversation. See you there!
