    South Central Coast Virtual Meeting

    DAUK South Central Coast group members agreed in our last meeting (on August 5th) to hold our next Zoom session after a shorter gap. So: that’ll be on Friday August 14th, starting at 7.30pm.

    On this occasion, we’ll discuss more ideas for activities that we might organize before November (as a group, in smaller sub-groups, and even individually – and in whatever the Covid-19 situation is), plus how we can attract still more new members to our local group, and so on.

     Any newcomers are more than welcome to sign up right now to join us. We’ll also shortly circulate the Zoom details to all members, new and existing, by BCC’d e-mail.

    In either case, we strongly encourage you to RSVP below, if you hope to join us on Friday August 14th for this next occasion. If you RSVP, we will contact you about future events and volunteer opportunities for the South Central Coast Region.

    Scotland chapter: August Virtual Speakeasy/EGM

    This month, for our virtual speakeasy, we will be holding an EGM to vote in a new Vice Chair.

    We thank our previous Vice Chair, Ian Doty, for his service. After the vote, we will be trialing a new meeting format, called "Watching from afar: how are we doing?"

    This is a difficult time to be away from our hometowns and our families. We at DA Scotland want to acknowledge these feelings and provide an opportunity for Americans living in Scotland to have a safe space for discussion of events at home. After an introduction to the concept, we will break into small groups for in depth discussion about the current state of affairs at home with other Americans. RSVP here
