The CNMI chapter was chartered on October 8, 1978. The first chairman was Gilbert C. Ada, who served for six years.
During these early years the Guam Chapter assisted the CNMI chapter in development of its services. In 1986, after a reorganization plan was implemented, a new six-member board of directors was appointed led by then senator Juan “Pan” Guerrero. Under new leadership, a chapter headquarters was set up in a war-damaged Japanese power plant near the Saipan International Airport. Currently the chapter has four paid staff members and a board of directors of 19 members.
The chapter is responsible for services on the islands of Rota, Tinian, and Saipan as well as the Northern Islands.
