Every month SAS meets for our general meeting commonly featuring a guest speaker and presentation. It also provides members a chance to engage and be in community with each other.

We normally meet on the campus of the University of Washington in the physics auditorium but are temporarily meeting over Zoom. We have  tentative plans for resuming in-person monthly gatherings in November, pending regulations and safety.

As always, our monthly general meetings are open to both SAS members and the public. We hope to see you online and/or in-person soon!
