Meetings start at 9:30 a.m. in the council meeting room of the New Providence Municipal Center, 360 Elkwood Ave., for coffee and conversation. This is followed by a program consisting of stimulating talks by people such as past governors, politicians, Nobel Prize winners, physicians, judges, professors, scientists, economists, etc. The subsequent Q&A is lively.
