Contact me if you have any questions - this should be fun!
Sheri Ekstrom, GCC Chairman


Our chapter sponsors two correspondence courses every year which means there are many other courses that we will not be offering to our membership. Individuals or small groups of EGA members are always welcome to pay the $175 registration fee and work on any project currently offered by EGA.

There are also opportunities for individuals to sign up for select classes every month for the low registration fee of $30. Check out the recent Inside EGA newsletter or the EGA website for registration information.


Cedar Valley Chapter welcomes new members who are interested in participating in workshops sponsored by the chapter.


If you are an EGA member, you can join Cedar Valley Chapter for $7, and Heartland Region for $2 (if you aren't already a member of our region). If you are not an EGA member, you can join our chapter, region and EGA for $48.
