Interest Groups

In addition to the regular monthly meetings, special interest groups or smaller section gatherings of the Tacoma Branch meet monthly. Non-members may attend these smaller group meetings occasionally, but we encourage membership for those who would like to attend these groups on a regular basis.14064911213_94206ff4b3_k
