2023 BUFF Speaker Series


Our monthly membership meetings are a great place to connect with others, hear about club events, and learn from top speakers in their fields. Stepping back and focusing on the speaker lineup, we recognized that this list is much more like a speaker series at a university or professional society. Our program directors, Dolph Greenberg and Blayne Smith, have done an outstanding job.
