Central & Western North Carolina Chapter of PCMA

History/Overview of Chapter

The Greater Charlotte Chapter began in the early 2000's as a networking group that met casually a couple of times each year.  The group grew into a more formal arrangement in 2008 and held the first official meeting of the GCA Chapter of PCMA on February 17, 2009.  

The chapter changed it's name in March of 2017 to Central & Western Carolina Chapter.  It was decided by the chapter members that the new name would better encompass all clubs belonging to the chapter.
