The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 19th at 6:30 p.m. at Kabobji Restaurant in North Bay Village, 1624 79th Street Causeway, Miami. Anyone needing more information can send an email to We are very excited about the new chapter, whose presence is definitely needed to further the important work of the Guild in South Florida.
