    No General Meeting is scheduled for the month of January 2018, because the Annual Banquet at the Swedish Club on January 28, 2018, will replace the General Meeting. The Banquet event will begin at 4:00 p.m. with seating for dinner at 5:00 p.m. Throughout the history of SAS, General Meetings, usually scheduled monthly, have never been scheduled during the month of January, but instead each year the Banquet will offer a nationally prominent speaker and program along with fine food and camaraderie. Tickets and information are still available on the Banquet page of this SAS Website.  Please join us for this very enjoyable and informative event!
