SEMO Chapter

The Cape Area Chapter has a working Board of Directors that was established in the fall of 2014. There is presently an effort being put forth to grow general membership for this Chapter. Two other area Chapters are in the process of being developed. One is in the Bootheel and is being developed in Caruthersville. This will cover the counties of New Madrid, Dunklin, and Pemiscot. The other Chapter will be in Butler County and serve the communities of Poplar Bluff and the many communities surrounding it.

Goals for 2016 are the same as those of Empower Missouri, as the Chapters develop goals for each Chapter will be added in accordance with the direction of Board and Membership. Work will be continued to work on growth in numbers and fill in the structure of the two new Chapters in Southeast Missouri. All three Chapters will continue to
support the Goals of Empower Missouri while adding numbers to the voice of those who speak for those who are not heard.
