We meet on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus ( details here ) EXCEPT in January and February when our meetings are held virtually using zoom. At RIT and virtually, the general meeting begins at 7:45 PM and typically involves a series of announcements, updates and a raffle.  A presentation by our visiting national speaker begins at 8:00 PM and usually lasts about an hour.

Monthly Show & Tell sessions

Show & Tell sessions are online meetings during which RWS members can share pictures of their projects and tell us about design and construction. This is a great complement to the in-person pre-meeting displays. Now you can share projects that are too big or too precious to bring to a meeting. Sign up today!


All RWS members will receive an email with a link to join each Zoom session. Socializing begins at 6:30PM and the Show & Tell speakers start at 7PM. Any questions can be directed to:
