KAMTA Calendar of Events 2017-2018

 

 

Business and Professional Development Meetings:

 

Regular KAMTA meetings are held at 9:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of the months from September through May in the Dorothy U. Dalton Center on the campus of Western Michigan University.  Any exceptions are noted below. 

Detailed directions to the Dalton Center can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this web page.

 

Come prepared to pay the meter!!!  (Suggested:  Bring $4.00 in American quarters.  Each quarter buys 10 minutes of time.)

Meetings begin promptly at 9:30 a.m., so it is recommended that you arrive in the ramp no later than 9:15 in order to get into the Dalton Center in a timely fashion.
