The Texas Federation of Chapters is sub-divided into four Areas (Northeast Texas, Southeast Texas, West Texas, and South Texas).  Each Area has an Area Vice President that oversees the Districts in that area.  The Federation Officers and Area Vice Presidents are members of the Texas Federation Executive Board.

In the 4 Texas Areas, there are 15 Districts each with a District Representative coordinating the chapters. For a list of District Representatives see the About Us topic “Texas Areas, Districts and Chapters”.
