CNPA Regions -

CNPA has been divided into 13 regional groups covering North and South Carolina. In North Carolina the eight regions are Asheville, Charlotte, Eastern Carolina (centered in Greenville, NC), Foothills has two meeting locations - Foothills North (Boone/Lenoir), Foothills South (Rutherfordton) , Outer Banks, Triad (Greensboro, Highpoint, Winston-Salem), and Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham). In South Carolina there are five regions, Upstate (Greenville/Spartanburg), Midlands (Columbia/Aiken/Chesterfield), Myrtle Beach, Low Country (Hilton Head) and Charleston. Members are assigned to a region based on where they live. Note that some regions span state lines (Charlotte & Myrtle Beach). Any CNPA member may attend any outing or meeting offered in any region. CNPA has members in at least 15 states outside of the Carolinas and in Canada.
