You spoke and KRW listened! Based on feedback from our member survey, KRW meetings will be on the SECOND SUNDAY of each month from 2:00pm -4:00 pm. The default place for meetings will be at the Starbucks inside side the Hurstbourne Parkway Barnes & Noble. If we have a speaker, however, we will select a different venue in advance.

Meetings will no longer have a formal business component aside from one general meeting per year in December. Pursuant to our bylaws, most business will now be handled by the KRW Board.
