Todd Johnson is the new speaker coordinator for DRC. He will try to arrange a meeting for each month except June, July, August, and December. The places and times of meetings might change as we arrange for free use of a facility and also because he is a busy working man. Hope you can make it to this meeting. He is an excellent speaker.
