Community Events for March Added to Calendar

Thanks once more to the chapter and SIG leaders for filling Your Friendly Neighborhood Blogger in on what’s going on in their neighborhoods. Click the Community Events tab above to see the full listing, in chronological order and with links where provided, or see the list below the jump.

If you’re a community leader and didn’t get my email, or if you didn’t get a chance to respond, feel free to email me and I’ll add your events to the below as soon as I can. If you weren’t able to send your event due to the holidays, please send now and I’ll add it to the list.

All members are invited to attend any of the below meetings, many of which are virtual. See the websites for more information or to sign up.

And if you’re looking for a cheap and easy community event, don’t forget that STC members have access to over 140 free, archived seminars. No need to schedule a speaker; just gather together, network, and watch an STC seminar!
