By Celis Brisbin, Programs Manager

Congratulations to the many individuals who have consistently volunteered for the Chapter to help us move forward with our mission. Our volunteers are really making a difference in how we are able to deliver education, to create excellent networking opportunities, and to advocate for state and local policies that will benefit our industry. And – they appear to have a great time while working on these many fronts! 

We took a few minutes at the Annual General Meeting to recognize some of these folks. It was fun.
