While COVID has made meeting via ZOOM a necessity, we will have to admit that there are some benefits. The largest is that speakers for our meetings are not limited to those in our local area. We have hosted several really great programs this year, and have captured those programs with video from the ZOOM meeting. Use the link to our private YouTube Channel below to review presentations from General Mike Loh, Lt Gen David Deptual, former CMSAF Rodney McKinley and several other guest speakers.
