While many communities in the United States take a brief break over the summer, there are still a few hosting events. So thanks to the chapter and SIG leaders for filling Your Friendly Neighborhood Blogger in on what’s going on in your neighborhoods. Click the Community Events tab above to see the full listing, in chronological order and with links where provided, or see the list below. 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 before, please send now and I’ll add it to the list.
