Program Meetings

| Program  Meetings 2021-2022

Traditionally our meetings are held the first Monday each month at the OSU Faculty Club. However, as the pandemic continues among us, we will continue to meet using ZOOM at least for our first two meetings in October and November. The Executive Committee will make a decision about the December luncheon based on the state of the pandemic and current OSU policies as well as CDC guidelines. Wach for updated information on this website, our calendar of events, your newsletter and email. A listing of planned programs is 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.
