Club's Meeting Schedule for 2016 and other updates

Hello All

Hope everyone is enjoying this gloomy weather! J We had a productive planning meeting yesterday and have a full slate of meetings and activities planned for 2016. Thank you to everyone who was able to make it. We’re getting this information to you now so you can mark your calendars; however details for each meeting will be forthcoming. 

In addition to the meeting announcements we have included a link to the DFC survey below. This is open to members and friends of the club and is worth taking the time to fill out. Let them know what you think! Deadline is January 26th so hurry. (Clicking on the link below will take you directly to the survey.) 

Lastly, we will be losing our regular meeting location in Pasadena. We are looking for suggestions/leads on a meeting room. If you know of any place in the Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley area that has a meeting room (free or low cost) please let us know. Our first regular meeting is in May so we’ll need to come up with a location by then.

If you have any questions please let us know by sending an email to the official chapter email address:  Thank you and enjoy the what’s left of this month of January!
