General MEetings

March 12 2020 General Meeting Status/Update:

  1. The ECP will hold its General Meeting at the normal time and place.
  2. Refer to the calendar event: https://calendar.google.com/event?action=TEMPLATE&tmeid=M2VtZGkyZW9rMmtyZ2hpYjY0b3Q3NXBiaDhfMjAyMDAzMTJUMjMzMDAwWiB2N2JzZWtkaGU3dmNnajd2ZDcyYWNrYnYyNEBn&tmsrc=v7bsekdhe7vcgj7vd72ackbv24%40group.calendar.google.com
  3. Will open up a teleconference session for anyone that wants to participate in that way - untested and potentially a low quality experience. The chat/Instant message feature part of the telecon may serve for participation. Refer to the calendar event for instructions - will be updated prior to the meeting on how to join.
  4. Post-meeting presentation is postponed (this will limit our time together)
  5. All in-person attendees encouraged to adhere to preventative hygiene guidance.

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!

Meetings are held indoors in colder/darker months and outdoors spring through fall:
