SVOS hosts General Meetings six to seven times each year.  These meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at the Courtyard Marriott (off Exposition Blvd) in Sacramento.  Dinner is provided and multiple vendors attend to showcase their products and answer questions.

A CE lecture is given during the meal for a minimum of two CE hours.  These meetings are a great way to interact with your colleagues, network with potential employers and earn a couple of CE credits.
