Monthly Meetings Will Now Be Held On the First Wednesday of the Month

Beginning on June 3, 2015, the remaining monthly meetings for 2015 will be held on the first Wednesday of the month. The time frame of 3:30pm – 5:00pm has not changed.

Our new, permanent location for 2015 will be Cafe a La C’Art, located inside the courtyard of the Tucson Museum of Art. We will have a separate room reserved for our members. Free parking is available in the TMA parking lot located on the north end of the historic block off of Washington Street. Metered street parking is also available in the surrounding area.

We are hopeful that this new location and date will encourage more of you to attend our monthly meetings – also, our meetings will take place during Happy Hour!
