The Willamette Chapter meets at 7:00 p.m. online on the second Wednesday from September through November and January through April. In the past in December and May, we enjoyed potluck events, though in 2020-21 this is uncertain because of the pandemic.

In the future, non-members and guests are always welcome to attend Chapter meetings and special events.
