New this month: Events with the blue @ icon have an online component, and STC members worldwide are invited to participate!

If you’re a community leader and didn’t get my email, or if you didn’t get a chance to respond, feel free to email me and I’ll add your events to the below as soon as I can. If you weren’t able to send your event due to the holidays, please send now and I’ll add it to the list.
