New Start Time
Over the past few months a number of members have mentioned the difficulties in cramming in all the activities on meeting night. Between trying to chat with fellow members, exchange library books, register for programs and workshops, participate in programme and hear the latest news from the executive, something was getting short shrift. To try and address these concerns we are trying out a new meeting format and start time. We believe it will help all of us get even more out of our meetings, and even give our librarian and membership chair, a chance to participate in programme.
