Monthly Programs are held on the second Tuesday of each month, September through June, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in the Campus Center - Odeum Room. Programs are educational and provide networking opportunity in a friendly and open atmosphere. Some months feature a guest speaker, case presentation and expert panel critique, while other months feature interactive multi-panel member discussions. Audience members are encouraged interact with presenters before, during, and after presentations. We are a non-profit program, so admission is tax-deductible. Pizza and beverages are available at each program. Food court on premise.
Contests are held annually and will be announced in advance. More information is available under the Contests menu link.
