Chapter lists are automatically emailed out monthly by our facilitator coordinator. If you are needing a new list please contact your facilitator coordinator.

Changes or Corrections needed for your chapter list? Please email membership with changes or corrections at providerresource.membership@gmail.com or email your facilitator coordinator.

Our membership list in A-Z format is also available to download in on our membership directory page. Please note this listing is updated seasonally not monthly.

Requests for mass emailing

Facilitators are asked to email their chapter members directly to make announcements. However, due to anti spamming laws PRO requests any mass emails being sent to the community at large should be done through our email system called Constant Contact. Our Director of Marketing and Communications is happy to help send out alerts to the community at large. This is a great outreach tool for those desiring to inform non members of upcoming events or to join PRO.

To send out an email please email us at providerresource@gmail.com Please allow up to a week for processing. Incomplete information may delay our ability to process your request. Please email the following information

  • Your Name and chapter
  • Who you wish to send the email to (zip codes and/or cities)
  • Date of event
  • Title of event (This will also be the email subject)
  • Details regarding the event (This is the body of the email you wish for us to send out)
  • Attach any fliers or registration forms you may have.
