Bay Area SoL Has Completed Its Mission and is Inactive

Dear Friends,

After 20 years the Bay Area fractal of the Society for Organizational Learning has closed its doors. Increasing costs and declining interest have forced us to cancel our last three planned events due to low turn out. We decided that the time has come to bring this grand experiment in social, organizational and transformative learning to a close.

Thank you to everyone, presenters and participants alike, for 20 great years of great conversations, supportive community and always interesting topics of learning.

The BASoL Stewards – past and present

General Meeting Information and Logistics


BASoL meets at  ImpactHubSF.

Impact HubSF is located at the corner of Fifth and Mission Streets in the San Francisco Chronicle Building. Powell Street BART is the nearest Station.


Our meetings run from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM and are nearly always held on a Friday.

We do begin and end on time, so please be mindful that arriving late means disrupting both the presenter and the participants.

We average between eight and ten meetings each year.

We do not meet in July or August. We have polled our members and weekdays are preferable to weekends, hence the reason we meet on Fridays and not Saturdays.

Due to presenter commitments we can not schedule for a set date such as the third Friday of the month.

If you are interesting in being a presenter please visit the About Presenting page.

We do break for lunch – bring your own or purchase something from the numerous food purveyors nearby.


Meetings are open to anyone with an interest in organizational and societal learning. BASoL operates as a recognized fractal of Global SoL – an IRS approved not for profit organization.

Meeting costs:

Meetings are $20 in advance = payable via the Eventbrite link or $25 at the door.
