San Jose, CA
The Northern California Chapter meets the first Saturday of every other month starting in September (we take a break in July). September's meeting is pushed to the second Saturday due to Labor Day holiday. Chapter meetings are a great time to meet other professional speakers, and learn the newest trends in Public Speaking, and running a Small Business. Meetings typically begin with a general round of introductions. We network in the halls to talk about challenges we're facing, successes we've had, and insights we've gained. After the introductions and announcements, the main program begins.
