    We would like to show case our products and services and also enjoy the camaraderie of the TAC members.

    Online RSVP Required (Microtech-Tel is not charging TAC for this meeting and hosting it free to those who RSVP). However, TAC is charging a $20 RSVP Fee. Each attending person who RSVP's will be given a Free Meeting Vochure to attend a future TAC meeting. This should help Microtech-Tel get a valid attendance count.
