Message from the President

Dear Members,

As always I hope this message finds you well. I just wanted to reach out to say Thank You to the members that were able to attend the Symposium last week. I truly hope that you enjoyed the sessions, were able to gain some knowledge, and had time to interact with the vendors. If you have any topic ideas or suggestions for the next symposium, please feel free to share with me. To those of you that were unable to attend, please know that you were missed.

In closing, our next membership meeting is Thursday, October 20th. You can register for this meeting on our website. It is also the election of officers for 2023. I hope to see you there!

Stay well, stay safe!!


Lori Siemon
