BA5s are Back!

We know you’ve been missing these great networking events, and we thought it fitting to bookend the pandemic with an event at the Library and Art Gallery. Our last BA5, just before COVID hit, showcased these two incredible institutions, so it made sense that our first BA5 back included this important community connection.
