Central Virginia Chapter

NGNA-Central Virginia Chapter is thrilled to introduce our group as NGNA’s newest chapter!

Our journey began when the initial meeting to gauge interest in a local NGNA chapter was held in September 2014. With the great support from the attendees at that meeting, the past several months have been spent electing a founding board of officers, establishing bylaws, planning regularly scheduled meetings, becoming incorporated, and developing our vision. All this hard work resulted in NGNA accepting our chapter’s charter in June 2015.

We look forward to growing our membership and promoting evidence-based care across the healthcare continuum and throughout the aging process for older adults in the Central Virginia region.
