meetings & events

Throughout the year, SLATE has a number of meetings and events scheduled.  
The regular monthly meetings begin at 10:00am and are usually held on the third Wednesday of each month (unless otherwise noted in the list below*).  We also try to provide information on other upcoming events, conferences, and meetings that might be of interest to the community.  

If you are interested in hosting an upcoming meeting, please contact us for additional information.  All that is required is a room that can accommodate 25-30 people, a projector, computer, and internet connection.  If you are able to provide morning refreshments and/or lunch that would be a bonus for the group, but not required.
