We are continuing our expanded partnership, our meetings this year are being hosted by PAL, LAA and DAC.
Some presenters are comfortable with in-person meetings and some are not. We liked the Zoom format, and so did many who responded to our meeting survey in the spring. Current plans are to offer meetings either by Zoom or in-person - by the presenter's preference. Keep an eye on the meeting notices to know the meeting format.
For those who forgot... our general meetings are held the second Monday of the month from September to June. Meetings start at 7:30pm, wherever they are being held. Open to the public.
The Zoom link will be posted here a day or so before the meeting.
