Change of Day/Time for Meeting
The group discussed a change in time of day, or day of week for our meetings. The final decision was to leave the meetings on the 3rd Mondays at 3 p.m. as the majority of the members are able to accommodate that date and time. Holidays often occur on Mondays, and that also changes the 3rd week throughout the year. The meeting dates will be announced ahead of time.
