In 1909, a group of residents formed the Chevy Chase Citizens Association. Over the years, the CCCA has brought neighbors together and continues to be a voice for its citizens. Our General Membership Meeting is generally held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (September – May) at 7:30 PM at the Chevy Chase Community Center. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, meetings will be held on Zoom. Notifications will be provided in our newsletter and on the Chevy Chase Listserv.
We are an association of citizens living and working in Chevy Chase DC.
Our mission is to foster community and improve the quality of life in both our neighborhood and our city.
We encourage civil discourse, serve as a community resource, promote public safety, care for our environment, and support local arts, business, and culture.
To this end, we sponsor informative programs, publish a regular newsletter, maintain a resourceful web site, host social events, recognize community achievement, advocate sound policies, grant financial support, and undertake community projects.
