All monthly meetings of SDIS are free and open to the public. 
A question/discussion period follows the talk.

The Talks: In 2013 three SDIS members, Wayne Fanebust, Gerry Horwitz, and Sam Gusman, joined together to write about the American frontier as an SDIS “Project.”  Each of them has now written an essay about the frontier.  (To read their essays, go to the SDIS homepage at, look for the stack of colored rectangles on the right side of the page, and click on the word "Projects" in the bottom rectangle.)  At our May meeting, Fanebust, Horwitz, and Gusman will each summarize his/her essay.

The Election: At our May meeting, we will also elect officers for the 2017-2018 SDIS Board.  A nominating committe (Betty Boone, Alvin Halpern, Jean Mayer, David Parker, and Sally Pollack) has proposed the following slate of candidates.
