Officers, Board Members, NY and Chapter members gathered for our traditional meeting followed by lunch and a presentation by guest speaker and Pacific-Northwest Chapter member Jim Foster. Jim gave a fascinating presentation on The Magellan Project: the first documented circumnavigation of the earth that began 500 years ago.
