The Dayton Ohio EGA Chapter was formed in 1975 and is part of the Great Lakes Region.
That means we are coming closer to our 50th anniversary!

While we do meet in person, we will continue to decide on a month-by-month basis as to whether we will be having a Hybrid (in-person and Zoom) meeting or an all-virtual meeting via Zoom only. So watch for the email to arrrive in your Inbox two days before each meeting. Contact Jana at

If you are NEW to us, please Contact us by email to see if we are meeting in person or via Zoom-only. If you are interested in attending a meeting as a guest, please contact us via email here or via our form here (both are regularly monitored). Interested in becoming a member?

Because of our Kirstie Macleod lecture,
the June 12, 2024 meeting will be via Zoom only. The lecture will be at 10 AM Eastern Time with the meeting to follow.

Just a head's up for July: because of our Celeste Chalsani workshop, it will be Zoom only, too. In July, the meeting will be at 10 AM Eastern Time and the workshop will begin at 11 AM Eastern Time (class is for participants only).

When we are in person, we are back at our original meeting location, Christ United Methodist Church, 3440 Shroyer Rd, Kettering OH 45429, at 10 AM Eastern Time

The programs for 2024 are set and are now viewable under the Programs menu. Plans for all things 2025 are under way. We have some big plans!
