About Us

The Mid-South Federation (MSF) consists of members of the Theosophical Society in America who live in the states of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

The purpose of the Mid-South Federation is to cultivate and enhance the theosophical life of members scattered throughout our eight-state area through an annual meeting held each spring, usually in the beautiful rustic surroundings of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We gratefully acknowledge the continued support of the Tanner Fund and those who donate to our scholarship fund to make it all possible. Please look around our website or contact one of the MSF officers for further information about our activities.
