In our new Zoom format, we start our combined Whidbey and Camano members meeting on the second Monday monthly at 10 am with a short business meeting and organizational updates. Our featured speaker begins at 10:30 am for about an hour. Then after a 5 minute break, we resume in breakout rooms, if desired, for meetings of Camano Members and Whidbey members to get updates on local projects.
