About the Matrix

Our Matrix governs us by consensus of a quorum of 6 or more women who are committed to a term of 1 to 3 years.  We believe each woman holds a piece of the truth, and we are guided by our by-laws.  All women interested in this process are welcome to attend Matrix meetings and join in the discussions. The Matrix meets on the 2nd Monday of each month (except July, Aug & Dec when there are no meetings), from 7:00 to 9:00 pm during the winter months, 7:30-9:30pm during the warmer months.
