New in the Forums Section!

As a member of MCGS, you have access to our forums section, where you can post your thoughts/questions on a variety of topics. A brand new forum is "Upcoming Programs" where you can make suggestions for speakers and presentations you'd like to see at our monthly meetings. You can even recommend yourself! We always try to have programs that are interesting and informative for our members and this is one way you can make sure we are meeting our goals.
And while you're on the forum page, take a look at the other topics and contribute. Or, if there doesn't seem to be a forum on the topic you're interested in, let us know and we'll get one set up.
