I'm the VP of the Minnesota Chapter. We meet monthly - although we do take a few months off due to other events (Firm Administrator appreciation breakfast by our local society, summer boat cruise with our chapter, and a holiday breakfast). Our agenda is as follows:
7:30 - 8:00 Networking
8:00 - 8:30 Chapter Business
8:30 - 9:30 Speaker/Roundtable

We typically have about 10 people in attendance, and then usually 1-2 individuals that call in. Attendance has been steady for the past couple of years. Attendees are usually within the Minneapolis/St. Paul suburbs. We are considering options for better using video technology so attendees can attend remotely beyond just the call in. I'd recommend looking at shorter meetings... I know everyone struggles to take time away from the office.

If you ever want to chat and brainstorm ideas, I'd love that. Feel free to email me at jana.cinnamon@aemcpas.com. Thanks!
