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. Field trip to The Mount is free for EFA members; nonmembers, $16.

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!
