2018 Chapter Events Calendar

About Our Events Calendar

We update our Events Calendar as we determine the locations and topics. Our traditional meeting day is the second Tuesday of the month. Social Hour begins at 6 PM, Dinner at 7 PM, and at 8 PM is the presentation. At our annual SEAOCC/ACI Event we begin at 5:30 instead of 6 PM. We stage dinners throughout the Chapter's large geographic region. We price our events as close to break even as is practical. Event dates, locations, and topics are subject to change, and we will be adding events as they come together.   

If you know a speaker, a subject, or a dinner location that would be appropriate for a Chapter event, please contact Jim Ayala, Program Chair and Chapter VP. Thank you!
