What We've Received

Everyone who has donated their time to presenting at our meetings can be seen on our past meetings page. Also see our LUGODers of the Quarter, members who have given particularly distinguished service to LUGOD. Businesses that have sponsored LUGOD are listed on our sponsors page.
