MSOG is made up of chapters throughout Massachusetts: Bristol, Merrimack Valley, Middlesex, and Worcester. Each chapter has its own governing board of officers, annual meeting, and election. Each chapter is a member of the state board and is represented by the chapter’s president. Chapters do not meet during the months of July and August.
