Fall Preview will be held on Sunday, May 21.
The annual meeting and preview of fall seminars will be held on Sunday afternoon, May 21, with the annual meeting, running about one-half hour, starting at 1:30 PM. When the meeting is over, members will be asked to sign off Zoom and sign in again using the invitation sent specifically for the preview.
Members will thus receive two Zoom invitations. The link for the annual meeting will be sent to all who have paid their 2023-2024 dues. If you do not receive that invitation, please double check to see if you have paid your dues.
A separate invitation for the preview also will be sent to members, and since this is open to the public, the invitation is not contingent on dues being paid.
The preview will follow the same format as last year. The first portion, with Nancy Denig serving as MC, will be devoted to short presentations by the moderators about their seminars. Then, break-out rooms will be established and members may move to the various break-out rooms to meet the moderators to ask specific questions about their seminars.
