All members are welcome to attend. This will be our last board meeting of the year as we have our annual meeting in December.


Dinners: If you're planning to attend one of our social dinners, please RSVP to editor@cthumanist.org, so we can give the restaurant a rough head count.

You can RSVP for the dinners and most HAC events via meetup.com.

Titles selected for our book discussions can be found in most local libraries or ordered from bookstores such as Barnes and Noble.
