    FUTURE MEETINGS:                                               Back to the Top

    We need presenters for our upcoming meetings.  If you have a suggestion on a speaker or topic for any meeting or if you would like to present, please contact John Walden.

    If your firm is willing to host and give us tour of your facilities that would be most welcome.  Please let me know if you can help here by emailing John Walden.  One additional advantage to hosting is that it provides some additional funds (that would normally go to renting a room) that we can use to serve a more interesting and compelling dinner fare.

    If you have a suggestion on a speaker or topic for any meeting or if you would like to present, please contact John Walden.

      Chris Scarlett, John Walden, Clem See.  The YSWUG Team.
