Morning Panel: Authors Beware!

Featuring Afternoon Speaker, Theodora Taylor, and OCC bestselling authors, Debra Holland and Maggie Marr. Panel Moderator: Tara Lain

General Chapter Meeting Information

Our chapter meetings are usually the second Saturday of the month. Other than the October meeting, our meetings usually have the following agenda.  Ask an Author is from 9 – 9:50 am and the meeting begins at 10 am with announcements. At 10:25 there is a break so that PAW/PAN can adjourn to the next room for their meeting. The morning speaker, usually geared toward general members and PRO members, runs from 10:30 to 11:30 when we break for lunch. You are welcome to bring your own, go out to one of the nearby restaurants or place an order for lunch with us!
