    Volunteer to host a meeting!

    The forum is a good place to stay informed, share ideas, ask questions and get answers from fellow Reefers but nothing can compare to meeting others in the hobby in person.

    Meetings allow users to discuss various topics and get to know each other better.

    A meeting is a great place for beginners and experts in the hobby to get together and share the reefing experience, TCMAS appreciates you hosting a meeting in your home and sharing with your fellow reefers.

    BOD can vote to forgo the 30 day notice if it comes up and has in the past here and there when meetings are sparse...........

    We are going through our schedule for possible late January/February dates. Do you think there would be interest in a Super (Fish) Bowl party? Just kicking tires :)

    There is no "too far" from the cities ;)
    And tank is not required.
    Would still love to have you host a meeting.

    I should also add Nick that in order to host a meeting you need to be a member.
