Our meeting format will stay the same, with a breakout session for new parents and national and/or local speakers during the main session.

The ASA-GPC will be providing light refreshments during the meetings. Parents may order their own dinners from the restaurant menu if they so choose, but there is no requirement to do so. The general public is always invited to attend and there is no admission charge.

Unfortunately, due to the change in location, we will no longer be able to provide childcare at our chapter meetings. We would like to thank The Loden Group, Betsy Strong, Aubrey Warner and Hallie Jones for providing childcare at our past meetings.

For information about the meetings or directions, please contact our Outreach Coordinator, Shelly Cordova.
