Our next regular business meeting will be Monday, March 19th from noon to 1 in the Terrace Dining Hall of the GHS Medical Center. The primary focus will be finalizing plans and duties for the upcoming LGBT Health Awareness Week. Please join us as everyone's effort will be needed to make our first events as successful as possible.
Our next regular meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday 2/29 at 5:30pm at Nacho Mama's in downtown Augusta. We have reserved the upstairs balcony, and we hopefully will be able get some work accomplished and then turn this into an after-work/school social gathering to get to know each other and build camaraderie among the group. Business goals include structural organization, vision/mission, leadership, and the first steps of action. We will also discuss our group plans (if any) for the upcoming National LGBT Health Awareness Week. Please visit the upcoming page or contact us for more info.
