State Chapters for the Under 30 Gateway

Several states already have an Under 30 Gateway chapter. If you live in one, let the contact person listed below know so you'll receive their communications and invitations to their programs and events. There's no extra charge to join, and it's a great way to meet your local community.  

If you live near another state with a chapter or if you just travel a lot, feel free to get on other state list(s) as well. If your state doesn't have a chapter and you'd like to start one, contact Blair Clemente, AHLA's Gateway staff liaison.
