We had many educational and fun events this year. What are we going to do next year?  Our organization depends on the involvement of our members. We need your help to plan next year's events and keep up with many administrative tasks. Please take a minute and chat with president Michelle about how you can help. We need all of our members to consider joining our board of directors next year.
