Major overhaul of this page on March 27, 2009
I removed all e-mail address, names, and phone numbers. And updated the addresses to those found on the organization's site. I did this for privacy reasons.
I removed all organizations with dead web addresses or no addresses. I did this because I feel that many MCS sites, inclucing this one, contained many now non existing MCS groups. We have copied them back an forth between our sites. I figure, if they have a working website they are still a valid organization. If a group is valid but has no website, I have no way to validate their information, plus, since not many of us can attend a meeting, a website is more useful to us than an address.
I added the follwoing organizations
Only when the last tree has died,
And the last river been poisoned,
And the last fish been caught,
Will we realize that we cannot eat money.
