A great opportunity to Join the Team! We are searching for "team" members to join our advoacay teams in ALL districts. Currently, the Central and Western Virginia Chapter covers 3 districts - VA - 05 - Robert Hurt; VA06 - Bob Goodlatte; and VA 09 - Morgan Griffith. Our goal for raising awareness about Alzheimer's issues is to build advoacy 'teams" - similar to WALK teams. The head of the team is the "ambassador", We currently have ambassadors for our three districts. We are striving now for team members to help support the Ambassadors. The role of the team member is to coordinate with the Ambassador for making visits to the district office if possible, and sending emails or letters to the editor as appropriate. We offer training and monthly Advoacacy calls. If you are interested in becoming involved, please call or email Ellen Phipps:

The Junior Committee
A new committee is being formed in the Charlottesville area to support and be advocates for the Alzheimer’s Association Central and Western Virginia Chapter. Spurred by the interest and hard work of fourth-year University of Virginia student Lisette Carbajal, the Junior Committee is now recruiting members in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.
"This committee offers a variety of opportunities to get involved including monthly meetings, fundraising events, ways to volunteer with the Chapter and a means to speak out in support of research and caregiver support,” said Carbajal. “Leadership positions are available, but of course we are looking for people who just want to be members of the committee too.”
The Committee held an organizational meeting in late February.
