Our Monthly Member Meetup is a new series of hour-long monthly events that we’ll host every second Friday at 2pm ET. Topics may cover sustainability, private practice, volunteering, the wiki, emergency planning, introductions to our various committees and groups, and more. Our goal is to offer you a social outlet and way to connect with other members. We welcome suggestions for topics and guest hosts! Send us your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
