While the entire guild meets as a group once a month, members may also join mini-groups. These smaller groups are a great way to get better acquainted with their fellow guild members. Mini-groups may be interest based, location based or project based. Members who don’t find a mini-group to meet their specific need are welcome to organize their own mini-group. No permission/authorization is needed. If you have an interest and would like to form a group but don’t know where to start, contact Chris Williams (email@example.com) and she will help you get started. The mini-group group must be limited to Bits n’ Pieces members to be included in the Bits website and newsletter and to have access to Yahoo announcements.
Current mini-groups are listed below. Click on the group name to find a schedule and information about joining.
