Each attendee will be able to rotate through three topics from the six during the meeting.

Special take away notes will be available at each table. As attendees arrive they will have an

opportunity to select which three topics they wish to explore. Since space for each topic will

be limited, those who plan to attend are encouraged to come early. The meeting is open to all.

First time guests and members are admitted free; all others are asked to pay $25.

Traditionally, the group reconvenes in the Inn’s dining room for informal conversation on the

contacts, offer mutual encouragement, and just enjoy the company of other community

the next level,” says Markman. “Our November program fits our mission perfectly.”

AWOB’s fall membership drive is underway. Those attending the meeting, who are not
