Our Membership Meetings

Our membership meetings allow us to come together as an organization and learn about our community and its members. We share news and updates from town officials, sponsoring members, nonprofits and most importantly, you. Our meetings are free to attend for members and we allow guests to attend a meeting before deciding on whether to become a member.
