Monthly Chapter meetings include presentations by guest speakers who share enlighting information related to their expertise in exploration. The subjects of the presentations cover a very broad range of interests ... a few examples include Sacred Mountains, UAVs, Caving, and Archaeology in Mexico. A summary of each presentation is also published in a monthly newsletter. Additionally the Chapter maintains a library of videos captured from Zoom monthly meetings.

The archive of Newsletters date back to 1995 - they provide insight to the members interests and activities over the years. You can find them using two different methods; one is a visual search by the presenters name-(below left), the other is a search by year/month-(below right).
