 SOAR Chapter Meeting and Speaker Event

Join us for our March Chapter meeting, scheduled for Thursday, March 14, time and location in work.  We will have time socializing, review the latest chapter survey results, discuss our strategic plan for the year, and have a great speaker, the President of Paragon Space Development Corporation, who will share with us how his company addresses the systems engineering challenges across a range of projects.  The event is open to chapter members, prospective members, and friends.  

Hope to see you there!
