*NEW MONTHLY MEETING LOCATION.*

Please note our new meeting location 5 Seasons Westside 1000 Marietta Street NW Atlanta, GA 30318 (http://www.5seasonsbrewing.com/contact). They close the location on Sandy Spring and we will analyze if this Westside location will be good for us have any impact on traffic.

Registration for the CPD exam is now open! The test will take place April 4 and 5, 2019. The test itself is only a couple hours and you choose which of the two days you want to take the exam. (As well as the time!) If you are planning on taking the CPD this coming April and would be interested in a review course, please let me know. If we have enough interested members, we will be providing a course free of charge. I took the review course last year and felt like it was a big help with the exam. As a reminder, the chapter will reimburse any member the cost of the exam if they pass.
