2020 SYTAR Special Interest Meetings
Share |

We reserve Friday evenings at SYTAR for attendees to explore the area, meet with friends, or connect with others who share their interests.

Beginning at 7:30 pm, the following groups are open to those who wish to attend. Some of these meetings are informal to allow for networking, whereas others offer more structured presentations. (Preregistration is not required for any special-interest group meeting.) Check back on this page, as new groups may be added until SYTAR begins.
