2020

NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were only able to meet for the first two talks planned for 2020. The remaining meetings were postponed sequentially as the date of the meeting approached (see the Upcoming Talks page). As of August, 2020 only the last meeting, scheduled for 11/18/20, has not yet been officially postponed. However, it is highly likely that we will be forced to postpone it when we get closer to the date. All of the speakers for the postponed talks have agreed to reschedule once it becomes safe to reconvene for our meetings.
