2021 Calendar of Events


Educational Meeting

Monthly educational meetings are held the second Thursday of the month in September, October, November, and May.  We also host a Saturday workshop in March, and our annual daytime Margaret L. King lecture in April. There are no educational meetings the remaining months of the year.

Continuing professional education is available free to SEMDA members at each meeting, and at a cost of $10.00/CPEU for non-members.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, educational meetings will be VIRTUAL for the 2021 year.

Stay tuned for the fall education meetings.
