Monthly Meeting Groups

Monthly meeting groups are a way for practitioners in various locations throughout the state to exchange information and practice procedures. They provide an excellent forum where peers can ask questions of one another and discuss the latest developments in the industry.

Monthly Meeting Groups are regional, and organizational structure varies. Below you can find a current list of groups by location. For information on when and where the group meets you can contact the group's Chair.
