A VERY SPECIAL WELCOME TO ALL 23 NEW MEMBERS JOINING OUR BRANCH ALREADY THIS YEAR!

  • Our “Welcome Back Breakfast” was a huge success with over 100 members and guests enjoying an exceptional full breakfast catered by Memo’s Bistro. Thanks to our hospitality chair Rosemary Dougherty and her team for planning and welcoming us all to this delicious event. During that breakfast we enjoyed an exceptional speaker, Heni Ben Amor who taught us about Artificial Intelligence and what happens in his ASU lab. He has volunteered to help us with our STEM initiative and is willing to have a tour for us at his lab. Watch for details!
