A Little Bit  About Us
We are a dedicated group of Jane Austen devotees who enthusiastically encourage all those interested in "everything Austen" to join us.   Our Chapter continues to grow and in September of 2017 a slate of new officers will take office.  These officers will provide leadership dedicated to continuing and expanding the high quality of programs and activities which are the hallmark of the North Texas Region.  Read more about the incoming officers below and feel free to contact any of them with questions,  ideas or suggestions.  Our group is made all the better by contributions from everyone.
