General Meetings

ASKC General Meetings are usually held at the UMKC Volker Campus in Royall Hall, Room 111, on the fourth Saturday of each month — except:

  • September: Members-only picnic (no regular meeting)
  • November: Saturday prior to Thanksgiving
  • December: Annual holiday party (no regular meeting)

The night begins with 30-Minute Astronomy (a short program on an introductory topic), followed by a meet and greet with light refreshments. ASKC's library will be open for browsing and material checkout. The meeting format typically includes welcome and introductions, guest speaker presentation, Q&A, and then general announcements and business items.

Meetings are free and open to the public.


This Month's Meeting

As usual, there will be no meeting in December. Members are invited to attend the ASKC Holiday Party. Check your Cosmic Messenger for details.
