LVSSC Events

We try our best to organize at least bimonthly seminars and an annual social event each year. The venue is variable and an attempt is made to accommodate members from all throughout the LVS geographical area. Meeting day will vary from Monday to Thursday, depending on the availability of the speakers. Meetings typically start at 6:00PM.

All events are open to SSCS members and interested non-members. Participation is free of charge. As always, food and drinks will be served. If you have suggestions, please send an e-mail to the officers.
