To join a SEA Small Group activity, you must be a SEA member. The SEA is always looking for new group ideas and leaders (SEA members) for these groups. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
Architecture Study Group
This inquisitive and informal group of 15 members meets at 10:00 am on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June. Each group member commits, alone or with another member(s), to research and lead at least one walk per year. The group focuses on Shanghai architecture/history/culture and does so in the context of interpretive walks lasting about two hours and ending someplace for a casual lunch. No architecture degrees or background are required, just a strong interest in Shanghai architecture combined with a love of walking. For more information, please contact Julie Chun at email@example.com.

A very social group that just wants to talk about good books! To be held on a Monday each month and hosted by members in their homes. We will recommend a book, but reading it is not a requirement to join. Please contact Linda Valentine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
International Women’s Choir
The International Women’s Choir meets at JZ School on Wu Kang Lu every Tuesday from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. This is a no-audition required fun group. Conductors, instrumentalists, and piano players are welcome, too. Meet new friends while enjoying singing. Please contact Theresa at email@example.com.
Overweight, in pain and inflammation, not enjoying good health? Join us on the last Wednesday of the month at 10:30am. Members of this group will learn about a ketogenic diet, why it’s beneficial, what foods to eat, to avoid and how to cook delicious dishes. The keto diet is a low carbohydrate diet, high fat diet (LCHF). Weight loss and better health journeys are difficult, so this group will provide a support network with extended groups and links on the internet to provide more information. Contact Mamie at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more details.
