About the Upper Hudson Chapter

The Upper Hudson (NY) chapter meets monthly, generally alternating each month between late afternoon regular meetings and informal networking lunch meetings. Since the pandemic, however, we have been meeting via Zoom in the late afternoon. Meetings are generally scheduled for the third Thursday of the month, unless otherwise noted.

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 have waived the $10 fee from nonmembers during the pandemic, during which we are meeting on Zoom.

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