TSCA Local Chapters

The Association is international, but provides for local groups (called chapters) which provide a vehicle for face-to-face activities in their areas. Chapters run events, hold meetings, sponsor youth groups, and build boats as a group effort. There are currently 27 active chapters, and several others organizing.

The national Chapter Coordinator is:
John Weiss, (Puget Sound Chapter)
1013 9th Ave S
Edmonds, WA 98020-3909
(425) 361-7758 (Home)
(206) 484-0372 (Cell)

Feel free to contact John or any of the listed chapter contacts via snail mail or e-mail for information on joining or forming a chapter.
Chapter bylaws are available in PDF format for reference as we receive them.
