We were founded in 1990 as a regional chapter of Sisters in Crime (SinC), an international organization for people who love mysteries in support of women who write them. Membership is open to everyone. The only qualification you need is an interest in whodunits and membership in SinC International. Your membership includes SinC International's newsletter, InSinC; Chesapeake Chapter's newsletter, Criminal Tendencies; and the international organization's Books in Print, featuring listings of all current books by Sisters in Crime authors.
Our chapter bylaws can be found here.
