Please join us for our General Meeting on Zoom .  The Zoom session will be opened at 6:30 pm for those who would like to socialize and chat with fellow mycophiles before the main meeting, which will start at 7:00 pm. 

Before our final speaker of the season, we will be having our biennial election of ministers.  Here is a list of the ministers up for election.  Any dues paying FFSC member can vote and can also volunteer or be nominated as a minister.  (Please note that the Prime Minister and Vice Prime Minister positions require having served previously as a board member. The other positions can be held by any FFSC member.) To get a sense of what is entailed in these positions, see Ministerial Duties.
