General MEetings

The Explorers Club of Pittsburgh holds its general membership meeting at 7:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Immediately following the business meeting we customarily conduct a presentation of travels and adventures of members (sometimes an informational session or demonstration). Following the presentation, the group socializes at a bar near the meeting.

The meetings are open to the public.  All current and prospective members are most welcome!

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have moved all General Meetings for the foreseeable future to Google Meet.
