Fall 2022

The Lunch, Listen and Learn sessions for fall 2022 will be held via Zoom, unless otherwise noted. The Zoom link will be sent to members at the start of each week. The LLARC membership fee includes the Lunch, Listen and Learn sessions.

The first 30 minutes of the sessions will be for socializing. We will be in small groups ("breakout rooms") to allow time for meeting new people, catching up with friends, and general camaraderie.

Speakers will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. on Zoom unless otherwise noted.
