Because of the long-term success of the New England Chapter of the Vernacular Architecture Forum in holding conferences, running local tours, and serving the needs of the regional VAF membership, the VAF board seeks to assist individuals and groups in establishing additional chapters. Seed money is available to nascent organizations composed of VAF members that will promote the forum’s educational mission and institutional goals.
Chapters should be designed to serve the needs of their constituency, so programming and structure will vary.
To discuss the process of starting a chapter and applying for start-up funds, please contact Will Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.Information about the VAF’s chapter program is also available at: http://vernaculararchitectureforum.org/Chapters
