Take Out Your Event Calendar!

Hello SoCal ASPA supporters,

Hope everyone enjoyed the summer, and ready to get back in the groove!  

At SoCal ASPA, we were busy planning our events for the 2017-2018 season.  Coming up, we have our university partnered events with University of La Verne and Cal State University, Dominguez Hills, and small and more personable events hosted by our long-time chapter supporters.  At the chapter council, we are also discussing adding a few more events to our calendar that are geared towards working professionals. 

So take your event calendar out, and mark these dates! We hope to see you at our events.
