About Our Chapter

Profile Chapter was established in January 1955 when its first officers were installed.  The first official meeting took place on February 3, 1955 with fourteen members in attendance.  Our membership is made up of individuals mainly from the southern New Hampshire towns of Concord, Manchester, Nashua, as well as several other surrounding towns.  For the 2012-2013 chapter year, meetings will be held at the Country Inns & Suites, 250 South River Road, Bedford, NH on the first Wednesday of every month between September and June.  Members meet from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. and meetings are centered around a one-hour educational presentation and a short business meeting, with time for networking.  An optional dinner is served for a fee.

Profile Chapter adheres to the mission and core values of the International organization.
