Come to the Meet and Greet!

15 Jul

Save the date! On Wednesday, August 12, at 7:30 p.m. in our regular meeting space at the Geek Partnership Society, there will be a meet-and-greet with the new candidates for Baron and Baroness Nordskogen.

  • Baron Geoffrey of Warwick and Sheikah Samia al Kaslaania
  • Lord Bazyli Boleslaw Krakowska and Baroness Siobhan Medhbh O’Roarke
  • Lord Crispin Fletcher and Lady Idonea le Lakere

A website is only as good as its content, and the best ones are updated responsively. I would love to have a couple people to deputize this spring, to help me grow and adapt our web presence to best suit our needs.

The list of individuals she compiles will be presented at the February Business Meeting.
