Annual General Meeting & February Monthly Chapter Meeting 2021
In this session, we'll use a standard Agile practice called "Lean Coffee," where the people who attend propose & determine the topic(s) of conversation!
Join us for an open session, and learn how this effective technique can work for any group, including yours!
NOTE: During the session, we will use Ideaboardz to help with the conversation. Click here to visit the board ahead and post a topic wherever you think fits.
We’ll also have giveaways during the meeting.

BUT WAIT! There's More!
We also need help from our Greater Atlanta Chapter Members to participate in the chapter's governance. This is done through our Annual General Meeting.
