MAS New (and old) Member Orientation Session
Jan 31st, 2009

We will be holding a MAS Member Orientation Meeting on Saturday January 31st, from 10:00 am until 11:30 am, at the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The orientation meeting will be held in the 2nd level classroom area, in classrooms 5 and 6.

New and old members as well as prospective members are invited to this orientation session. Here you will learn more about the MAS organization, MAS observing sites and affiliated locations and organizations, Star Parties and programs, Special Interest Groups, and generally get to learn and discuss how you can get the most out of your MAS membership.

We will conclude the MAS Member Orientation Meeting with a short Beginners' SIG (Special Interest Group) meeting.
