Current CWFG Board Meeting Schedule

The CWFG Board meets the 1st Tuesday of every month before the main meeting at OMSI, from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. This meeting is where the nuts-and-bolts business of running the Guild all happens. Members are welcome and invited to attend to contribute or just observe. This is a great way to get more involved in the Guild.
