What is a Chapter?

Our WoodmenLife chapter is one of nearly 1,300 locally chartered units nationwide. Members belong to a chapter in the area in which they live and each chapter elects their own officers.

Through our community-focused, family-oriented chapter, members aspire to achieve fraternal ideals through our social, civic, charitable, educational, patriotic, and voluntary service activities. We partner with local schools, fire departments, and other charitable organizations to help make our community better for everyone.

Chapters across the country plan a diverse range of activities. A local chapter might host a family fish fry and game night, help build a local Habitat for Humanity home, or hold a bake sale to benefit its volunteer fire department. Our chapter activities create family time and are about having fun, making new friends and helping others.
