Our Meetings

The Committee meets once or twice, usually by teleconference, prior to each issue of the Pipeline to develop content. Editorial review (proofing) is done through electronic distribution of the draft publications.

We try to meet once a year in person to exchange ideas. The Chair also attends regular C-PAC meetings.

Upcoming Events

Our upcoming events are directly linked to each edition of the Pipeline – Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
