What is the process for new members to become part of the group? Generally, they reach out to me and I invite them to our next meeting.

Do you have any additional group info you would like to include? As we meet virtually (group started at the very beginning of COVID), we no longer have a set meeting day. At the end of the current meeting, we compare calendars and set up the day/time for next one. However, more often then not, we’ll meet on a Saturday, anywhere between 5:00PM and 7:00PM, with meetings approximately 1 1/2 hours in duration.
