We will continue to meet on Fridays at noon at the Sequoia Building (2100 Washington Blvd). The meeting rooms are large and quiet, food is available, parking is free, and once you’ve been here, its easy to get to.
We may on occasion (possibly quarterly) hold an evening meeting to include members who are not able to get away at lunch time.
