After many years, Marilin Smolin and Estelle Barton would like to pass the baton as Study Group VPs. This is the very important board position that secures the venues and sets up the calendar for all of our in person study groups. It is a most vital part of MWI. We thank Marilin and Estelle for their devotion to keeping our Study Groups interesting, fun and operational.
Cheryl Ross, currently chair of Study Groups, will retain her position. Marilin, Estelle, and Cheryl will act as advisors to the new crew, and they have assured me that they will continue to help out as needed. If you have an interest in joining the Study Group committee and/or becoming a VP, please contact us.
Study Groups are being conducted for members only viaZOOM.
MWI members AND professional speakers present interesting, timely, and thoroughly enjoyable interactive programs, usually twice weekly. Join us for a delightful hour and a half, while we get to visit (noisily) for a few minutes before the presentation.
If you have expertise in an area, or have any presentation that you think would be of interest to our members, please contact Polly Hammer.
Check our calendar weekly for dates and times of those Study Groups marked ZOOM.
IMPORTANT NOTICE RE STUDY GROUP LOCATIONS
When you make notations in your calendar to attend the various study groups entered on our website calendar, please check carefully for the exact day of the week, place, and time.Several of the facilities we have consistently used in the past have received grants for renovations, and we occasionally use other locations to continue to offer certain study groups. This is an ongoing situation with the libraries and will continue for some time.
We try to alert you where there is a change at each calendar entry, but want to stress that you check carefully so that you go to the right location on the right day and at the correct time.
Unfortunately, this is beyond our control, and we are trying to make it as convenient as possible. Please bear with us as we manage this juggling act, and continue to enjoy the various programs offered.
