Continuing Education Forum

The BGS Continuing Education Forum was started in 2018 to provide an additional opportunity for our members to interact in a social setting, gain exposure to short, informative topics of interest and interact informally with our Officers and Board Members.

Being held on a weekday morning opens accessibility for those that may not be able to make our regular evening meetings or would just enjoy additional interactions with other club members.

Meetings start with a breakfast at 8:35AM.  Participants often supplement our club provided traditional culinary fare by bringing a small dish to pass, leading to a morning treat of grand proportions. This is followed by a brief update from our Continuing Education Coordinator of topics being discussed by the Board and a short presentation or hands-on workshop starting at 9:45.
