    Dear CCTS Stakeholders,


    Attached, in PDF form is the October edition of the CCTS events calendar.  This looks like an uncommonly excellent set of events, and I encourage everyone to get out an take advantage of these events, and also I encourage all member society chairs/communication officers to redistribute the calendar or to share the weblink so your members can be informed of events that enrich networking among our technical community.


    Note that the calendar is available on the web at the CCTS website: http://cctsonline.org under the 'Calendar/Events' tab, and individual items appear on the side bar.

    Also, you can find it on Facebook (search for "Canaveral Council of Technical Societies")
