Doc Fritchey TU generally holds its membership meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month, except for one month during the spring (Annual Banquet), some summer months, and December (no meeting).
Our business meeting, which is open to the entire membership, generally follows the featured program of the month which starts at 6:30. Members who would like to present something to the board are asked to contact the chapter president before the meeting to schedule time on the agenda.
Guests are always welcome at our chapter meetings!
