SBCAN Roundtables this week

Hi {{recipient.first_name_or_friend}} --

Here is our draft agenda for Thursday's meeting. We hope you will be able to join us and participate in discussions about important issues and actions coming up later this month and in coming months.

At the last meeting (our first at Giavanni's) the pizza was on me. This time, come early, if you'd like, and order what you'd like. We will meet in the private room.

Hope to see you there!
