Message from the Dean 

Welcome to the Southwest Florida Chapter Web Site. Our chapter was founded in 1958 and we are happy to welcome new AGO members at any time. Our current membership of 58 people covers a wide geographic area from Port Charlotte to Naples. We have meetings and workshops during the year that will interest all church musicians. It is not necessary to have a degree in music to be a member. Membership categories range from student voting to regular voting. You may also join as a chapter friend.  For a substitute list and all other matters you can access our most recent chapter newsletter, The Coupler, by clicking on the link below. Thank you.

John Renfroe, Dean
