The best place to get info on SMMS happenings is the Google Group / mailing list. You can subscribe to that here:
It's low-traffic, moderated, and members post sometimes about other local events, which seems appropriate.
There's also a Facebook page for events, but I'm not as good about updating it.
We could use some help with organizing SMMS meetings! If you have organizational skills of average or better quality, and a few hours every month to contribute, please show up and get involved.
