Some programs may be offered online via Zoom. Whenever possible, these will be offered as hybrid meetings, with some members choosing to attend in person with a Zoom feed in the meeting room, while others may opt to attend from their home. Many of these offerings are lectures, although we have plans for some online workshops as well. See our calendar of events for listings that indicate whether the event is Zoom only, in-person only, or hybrid Zoom and in-person.
We request that you please refrain from wearing fragrances and bringing fresh flowers to chapter meetings and workshops. Some of our members have severe reactions to fragrances. We want to do everything possible so that our meetings and workshops offer a welcoming and enjoyable environment for all attendees. Thank You!
