Welcome to our Society!!

As of October 9, 2021, and for the future, our GSS monthly Society meetings will be held on the 2nd Saturday of the month at the Gulf Gate Library,  7112 Curtiss Ave., Sarasota.  Parking is plentiful there both in front of the library and behind it. Meetings at the library are open to members and the public. For those members who prefer not to attend in person, we are also broadcasting our meetings via GoToWebinar. Members wishing to view from home must register for the virtual broadcast prior to the meeting date.  A registration link will be sent to members prior to the meeting date.

Our society has a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), many of which are open to the public, but our DNA and Mentorship SIGs are for GSS members only.  

Please see below for instructions on becoming a member.
