We are happy to announce an exciting lineup for 2022! With a new year comes a renewed hope we will return to some sense of normal and a return to in-person gatherings. We were hoping to begin in-person meetings in late 2021, but varying mandates and the rise of the omicron variant led us to postpone any in-person meetings to Spring of 2022 (a million thanks to Dave Simpson for being so flexible so he could be our first in-person presentation in two years).
