In their place, we are hosting an orientation on Zoom each month, the third Monday at 7:00 p.m.. If you are a member, you may register for the orientation, which is listed on the calendar of activities. If you are considering joining the Club, please contact our VP of Membership at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link. Alternatively, you may watch a brief orientation on our website. Please click on the following link to get a flavor of what we are all about until we can safely resume the in-person meetings. Introduction to the Santa Barbara Newcomers Club.
We do not know when we will return to hosting in-person orientations, but we provide a similar presentation and opportunity to “meet” officers at the Zoom orientation. Through slides and explanation by officers, we describe the committees, types of events, ways to register for events, recommendations for getting the most out of the club, etc. Usually, we ask each attendee to introduce him/herself, and that provides a snapshot of the range of persons who are joining SB Newcomers.
You can join Newcomers before you attend an orientation meeting, and once you have joined, you may sign up for any of our many events! If you join Newcomers before Sept. 15, 2021, your membership clock will not start until that date; the extra time is a bonus you can enjoy before your two-year membership actually begins
