- Some topics have not yet been decided, hence the "TBD" = "To Be Determined".
- The dark red dates are BAMA talks so there will be no SJMC meeting.
- SJMC meetings take place regularly on Wednesdays, in MH-320 at SJSU, from 7:00PM to 9:00PM, see directions.
- If you'd like to see your name on this schedule page, as a leader of a circle session, contact us!
- Handouts of past meetings will be posted as we receive them. If you have past handouts that you don't see here, please let us know.
