Here is the 2012 Meeting Schedule – please put them on your calendar. Remember, meetings are not only mandatory (part of the State Dept. requirements) but they give you the opportunity to meet other au pairs and have fun! Be sure to let me know ahead of time if you cannot attend (via email) – otherwise it will count as one of your two missed meetings for the year.
