We learn from each other in a variety of settings – at monthly meetings, at special interest group meetings, at workshops and at biannual conferences. You will have lots of opportunities to share your strategies, struggles, successes and stories with others who appreciate the challenges of this hobby.
From occasional tasks to Board-level positions, there are lots of ways to get involved as a volunteer. See our Volunteer Opportunities page for some of the possibilities. Become involved! You will make life-long friends!
We welcome visitors, so please drop in at a meeting and introduce yourself. Come see how our services and programs fit your needs. We hope you will join us!
