Have you ……..
  • Pre-registered your Board members for the Fall Training to be held Saturday, September 21?  Bylaws require that all Board members (both Executive and Chairs) must take the one time Leadership Orientation Training ( LOT)  by October 15.  See our brochure for LOT times and the titles and times of the optional workshops on that day.  A prize filled Vendor/Resource Fair will also be held that day!
