Upcoming meetings

Board of Directors

Board of Directors meetings are held the 2nd Thursday night of each month (September through May) in the clubhouse at Glen Echo Country Club, Map to Glen Echo CC map unless you see a special date or location announced on the home page events calendar. Social hour starts at 5:30, dinner and officers’ reports at 6:30, and the business meeting at 7:15. Meetings are open to all section members, but attendees must pay for their own dinners. The usual cost is $24; officers and chairs of major committees who are post-docs or unemployed, $12. There is no cost to attend only the business meeting. Elected officers and committee chairs have the right to vote; others in attendance have voice but no vote.

Dinner reservations are required by noon on the Monday before the meeting. Contact the section Chair to make a reservation.

The Continuity Dinner

is a fancier than average board meeting held in December. At this event, there is usually a brief General Meeting of the Section to conduct general-meeting business; the Distinguished Service Award is announced (but not conferred until March); and the gavel is officially passed from the outgoing chair to the incoming chair.
