The Upper Hudson Chapter events are open to all EFA members, guests of members, and freelancers interested in joining EFA. Our regular chapter meetings are free for members; we ask a suggested donation of $10 from nonmembers. No fee for lunch meetings; participants buy their own lunches.

We serve the Hudson Valley and greater Albany area in New York State, Berkshires in Massachusetts, northeast Connecticut, and southern Vermont. Of course, freelancers from beyond those areas are also welcome!
