This page has two parts. First is the information for the next upcoming meeting. The second lists details of the most recent meetings along with any handouts or presentations made available for downloading.

If a meeting is lacking in details, we are still working out details on where the meeting will be held and as soon as they are available we will post them. We strive to get invitations out two weeks in advance, though sometimes less depending on circumstances. The website lists all of our meetings for the year as placeholders so members and guests can plan as far ahead as possible.

If you are a vendor interested in sponsoring an upcoming meeting, please download our meeting sponsor form to select what level sponsorship you are interested in and what month you are able to sponsor. Sponsors are given the opportunity to present at that monthly meeting and be recognized by those in attendance. Please contact Manny Vierra ( for more information. Please return the completed form to Manny.
