This happens to be a question we've gotten several times recently; the answer is that no, you don't get to meet the donors in person. We simply list the donors from the sperm banks in the United States; but like all other sperm banks in the U.S., you don't get to meet the sperm donor you choose.
This is primarily because of privacy-related issues and applies to both open and anonymous sperm donors. No reputable sperm bank will offer you the opportunity to meet your sperm donor; however, your child may be able to contact your donor at the age of 18 (but this is no guarantee there will be a meeting).
Remember any options regarding contacting a donor are reserved for the offspring of the sperm donor once they turn 18 or 19. Thus at no point will you be able to meet your sperm donor before you use his specimen unless you're using a known donor.
