Videos of D-OGS Meetings are now online!

We have added a new section on the members-only portion of this website with videos of meetings starting in the Fall of 2020, along with a few older ones that were on YouTube.  Our plan is record all meetings going forward for members to view, but note that some speakers will not allow us to record and as expected there are sometime technical problems.  Here is the list of recordings available now.
Details about each recording can be found in the history of past events section
