Each meeting features Board member introductions, general announcements, “Better Know a Constellation”, normally presented by a member, main speaker (around 45 minutes duration) and an after-meeting social gathering. Society business is occasionally transacted as needed.
NOTE: Meeting time and / or location sometimes change to take advantage of special program opportunities. Please check the MAS homepage and/or recorded message at 952-467-2426 for the latest information regarding the meeting.
