Regional Groups

In addition to BVA’s work on a national level, the Association also supports 52 separate regional groups throughout the United States. A few of the regional groups are subdivided into chapters while one regional group, Florida, is comprised of a series of districts, each of which has its own boundaries and individual district directors. Members of BVA nationally are automatically members of their local regional group. You can learn more about regional group activities by calling BVA National Headquarters at 800-669-7079. You will then be put in contact with the organized group, chapter, or district nearest your home.
