Due to the easing of the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings for the rest of 2022 will, whenever possible, be hybrid; that means they will be held both in-person and as webinars that will be recorded with speaker permission. All times listed are for the Central Time Zone. In-person meetings, which will have some space limitations, will be held at the society office, 4 Sunnen Drive, Suite 140, Maplewood, MO 63143. All events require advance registration, and instructions for each event will be posted on the appropriate page on this website.

Many of our meetings are now available as digital recordings.
