 Clan MacLachlan Association of North America

The Clan MacLachlan Association of North America Inc. has been in existence as an  association for over 35 years. The core of the Association was in North Carolina where there have been MacLachlans for 250 years. It is still strong in the Carolinas and the South East but over the years has developed a concentration of strength in the mid Atlantic States and the New England States ; it now sponsors numerous tents and social gatherings. In 1999, CMANA united with the Clan MacLachlan Society in a federation of autonomous Branches throughout the world..
