    Volunteer to host a meeting!
    Now both Members AND Supporters can 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.

    Earn lifetime membership!


    Hosting a meeting gives you lifetime membership (full access to all member forums), allows you to vote in absentee at business meetings and increases your PM limit to 800 posts.!

    For each 2019 meeting that a member attends (MUST sign the sign-in sheet!) they will receive 1 entry that will be entered into a drawing to win a $250.00 GC to the Sponsor of their choice.

    I think 2019 may be a good year for my next meeting. Have to wait a couple months to see if the new tank gets off to a reasonable start before signing up though. :)

    I like the new gift card entry and drawing system. Gives everyone a chance with a larger percentage to frequent attendees and hosts. $50 reimbursed for food and drinks is awesome as well.

    Just a reminder, our next scheduled meeting is on January 12th.

    And don't forget that this year there's two contests; one for the meetings where each meeting you attend in 2019 gets you an entry into the drawing for the $250.00 gift certificate to a sponsor of your choice
    AND
    One for the meeting hosts where each meeting you host gets you an entry into the drawing for the $250.00 gift certificate to a sponsor of your choice.
