Our 2018-19 program year ended with a June 15 members-only "Show
and Tell," followed by a Social Hour at Avenues HQ, with drinks and
Middle Eastern delights hosted by our president, Steve Hanon. Our
presenters: Jacob Ford, Steve Hanon, Andrew  Kapochunas, Joseph
Porder, Fred Shauger, Laura Ten Eyck, and Emily Theisen. See photos
at our "Past Meetings" page.
Our 2019-20 program year began September 1, 2019. We hope you'll
renew, so that we can continue bringing members quality lectures and
field trips. The grace period for our receipt of dues -- during which you
will still be considered an active member -- ends December 1, 2019.
Please take a moment now to renew at our
"Join Us" page.
Our Upcoming Fall 2019 Program:
Saturday, 2:00 pm, October 19, 2019
John Huth will expand upon his book: "The Lost Art of Finding Our
Way."

Venue:
Avenues HQ, 17th Floor Boardroom, 11 East 26th Street (between
Madison and Fifth Avenues)
, New York, NY 10011. Bring Photo ID for entry.

"I'll be examining the post-smartphone world with an eye to the losses we
have incurred in exchange for boundless information at our fingertips. My
book is a guide to the “primitive” (and yet, incredibly sophisticated)
techniques by which our forebears charted, measured, predicted, and
navigated their place in space."

Ian will take us on an exploration of the history of the shifting populations of

record.
