In keeping with our guild mission statement, we strive to offer programs that feature local and national guest speakers. Our specialty groups within the guild offer interesting programs too. All programs are conducted at our monthly day and night meetings. Whenever possible, corresponding workshops are held on the Wednesday following the monthly meeting. We are currently booking our 2018 speakers and are looking forward to an exciting year.
All programs are free to OPQG members. A $10 fee will be charged to non-members for a program featuring a guest speaker.
