We sponsor tours to Egypt and organize occasional bus trips to museums that are featuring exhibitions on Egypt. We maintain close contact with the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, and the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C., which frequently provides a speaking venue for our lecturers. Our lectures are otherwise coordinated with and held at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Our chapter has approximately 100 members and the average attendance at lectures is approximately 40 people. When held at the Egyptian Embassy, the number can exceed 100 attendees.
