Meeting Times

Meetings almost always occur during activity hour on Wednesdays, between 11:15 am and 12:15 pm. During COVID-19, we have shifted to an online platform and host all of our meetings remotely through Zoom or other live video platforms. When we are able to host in-person events again, the location of meetings typically changes, but we send an email prior to each meeting regarding the location.
