Event description

Please RSVP for the upcoming Zone 9 meeting hosted at DePaul University if you wish to attend. The SPS Zone 9 meeting will begin at 4pm on Friday February 8th and will continue through about 9pm on Friday. It will continue Saturday morning at 10am through 3pm, after which there will be an optional tour of the DePaul University Maker-Space in downtown Chicago and time to explore the city, potentially including a museum if there is interest. We would love to know if there is a particular museum that you are interested in. This will be a great opportunity for chapters to connect other chapters in the Zone and with their national representatives. There will also be a poster session for students to present their research, bonding activities, a demo session, the Second Annual Zone 9 Trivia Contest, and more in store.
