ASPIA Meetup Group – for partners

ASPIA has created a Meetup Group to increase our social profile and help us stay in touch better.  We have called it Sydney Partners of Adults with Asperger’s Syndrome (ASPIA), and it is a closed group, meaning people need to apply to join.  It is free for ASPIA members and Yahoo Group members, $5.00 for others.  Please follow the link, and click on “join us”.

We will use this Meetup platform to organise social get-togethers and other events.
