Program Meetings

| Program  Meetings 2020-2021

Traditionally our meetings are held the first Monday each month at the OSU Faculty Club. However, in this year of Covid 19, the Executive committee and the members decided to have all our meetings virtually ; as everything else seems to be currently. We will have our monthly gatherings using Zoom, an internet based video conferencing program. A listing of the years programs follows below.

About the Program

Approximately a week before the program, every member will receive an MS UWC email with the link to join the meeting. There are no additional costs associated with joining the Zoom meeting: no registration, luncheon fee or parking. You can join as early as 12:30 to get settled. The speaker we have planned will start at 1pm. Our time together will include the usual introduction of new members, honored guests and a short business meeting. Since you will most likely tune in from home, you can enjoy the lunch or snack of your choice. We plan to set up small group gatherings at the end of the meeting so you may visit with a small group of members who have been attending.
