Speakers generally present for about an hour preceded by some announcements and “taking care of business” which generally lasts 10 – 15 minutes. Members of CDGS always get first chance at registering for the meetings, but there is usually some room left over so on the 16th of the month we open to allow non-members to register for the meeting. When the Colonie Town Library re-opens for meetings we will post in-person meeting information.
We have some great presentations coming up……. Take a look at the Meetings & Events tab for more information. But here is a sneak peek at some upcoming topics:
