Our December meeting is our traditional business meeting where we elect officers, review the year’s events, and this year we will be also auctioning off books from the library, selling SMT gear, including the new SMT power bar, $15 for members, $17.50 for non-members.

Books from the SMT library will be auctioned off during the second half of the meeting.  If members would like to bid on a specific book, they can search the SMT Library online and then send Vas an email at , letting him know which library book they would like brought to the meeting to bid on.  Vas will also bring additional containers of books that members may review during the break prior to the auction.
