[I've only been able to get my hands on brochures for the Boston Area
Returned Peace Corps Volunteers group, hence the references to the
Boston Area in the transcribed description below.  I believe that
there *IS* some sort of national organization of local chapters, but
have not gotten contact information for such.  I have been told that
if you are interested in finding a local chapter, you can contact the
Peace Corps at 1-800-424-8580 and they can help you, or you can write
to the below address.]

The Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers is a non-profit
organization established in 1978 for the purpose of carrying out the
third goal of the Peace Corps, as stated in the 1961 Peace Corps Act:
"To promote a better understanding of other people on the part of the
American people."

Current membership is over 500 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs)
and spans more than three decades of service in 40 countries.  It has
an 18 member Board of Directors and numerous committees which work to
achieve specific goals both locally and internationally.

The BARPCV is funded by membership dues and fundraising efforts.  The
BARPCV encourages and supports participation from former and
prospective Peace Corps volunteers of all ages and backgrounds.  The
BARPCV serves as a resource for global understanding by sharing the
special skills and unique experiences of living and working overseas
in international development.
