Meetings - Come Join Us!
Meetings are generally held the third or fourth Thursday of March, June and October at various locations in western Massachusetts. We hold occasional Outreach meetings in communities throughout the Commonwealth in conjunction with local sponsoring groups. Our meetings feature presentations by members or experts on a variety of topics.
After meetings members are invited to stay to chat, discuss research, and collaborate with other members and new-comers. We are a friendly society and always welcome new members and their guests. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
