At the end of last summer we surveyed our members about what they wanted from the ESWA organization. We received great feedback, but one significant response was overwhelmingly high among members surveyed. It seems that the monthly ESWA meetings that rotated around the Delmarva Peninsula were too far away for many members.
So for the next year we’ll be doing meetings in two regions and each region will have its own schedule. The regions are the Upper Shore (Cecil, Kent MD, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Caroline, Dorchester, Kent DE & New Castle Counties), and the Lower Shore (Sussex DE, Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, Accomack VA & Northampton VA Counties). Each of those regions has a coordinator who will work with the members in that region to find meeting venues and times that convenient.
Members are free to go to any meetings in either region. Most of the meetings and events are open to the public. Check out the dates and times of upcoming events on our EVENTS page.
