EVANSVILLE CHAPTER IS NOW ON FACEBOOK.
Facebook is an online social networking website. We've created a page for our chapter on Facebook as we try to stay up-to-date on modern communication opportunities out there. Facebook is very popular with certain age groups and segments of our society that we need to be reaching out to. If you're already on Facebook, join up. If not, you might enjoy the online community it provides.
