Chapter Information

After years of success, the locally organized parrot head clubs network has grown to proportions that none of us ever expected! With many officially recognized clubs in place, and national conventions occurring annually, our organization continues to grow in leaps and bounds. Our intention is to promote the national network of parrot head clubs, known as Parrot Heads In Paradise, as a humanitarian group that shares information and activities for mutual benefit. We all share a common statement of purpose:

Parrot Heads in Paradise, Inc. was created to promote friendships and organize social activities for people with similar interests including enjoyment of the tropical spirit of Jimmy Buffett’s music.

Please take some time and read through our club documentation below.
