Monthly Meetings

The Monthly Meetings take place on the third Saturday of each month. Each month, except for Aug and Dec, our fearless chairperson invites a guest speaker to enlighten us on many different genre related subjects.

Most months the meetings are held in person and on Zoom. Please check the News page of the website for the Zoom link, updates on upcoming meetings and other announcements and articles.

All Monthly Meetings are free to attend and open to the public. You do not have to be a Parsec member to attend. If you would like to help support the Parsec programs, please visit the membership page. An annual membership helps keep all the great programs running.

In December we hold a holiday party at a Parsec members home. Please check the News page of the website for announcements regarding the annual holiday party.
