Our chapter meets three times per year, on Saturdays. The typical meeting includes steins for sale or trade between members, a main presentation (often by a guest speaker), plenty of time for questions and answers, and a meal. Members are also encouraged to bring a stein for a "show and tell" (or often, "show and ask") session. The topics chosen for the main presentation are intended to cover a wide variety of interests within the stein collecting community, and foster well-rounded stein knowledge among our members.
