Section Calendar
Some dates are still tentative

SMPTE/New England meetings are usually held at 7:00pm (refreshments at 6:30) on the third Wednesday of every month from September through June. Locations vary to allow attendees to tour various sites of interest. You don't have to be a SMPTE member to attend and there is no admission charge. Students and the public are invited to attend. Join our e-mail meeting announcements list and we'll send you e-mail every month so you don't have to keep on checking the web site. You don't have to be a member to get these announcements.
