Once logged in, you will see a new menu option under Members Only, called Member Forums.  These forums can be used for talking about a particular meeting, beginner topics, advanced topic, jobs needed or opportunities announced, offering the group feedback, and even for coordinating rideshares, as was asked at several meetings.  For more information, be sure to visit the Rules and Help tabs once you get into the Member Forums.  Feel free to give us feedback on how we can improve the discussion forums.
