Summer 2019 Update

Hello all,

I hope you are enjoying a restful summer.  Thanks to all who came out to our June Final Friday Happy Hour.  It was our biggest group yet!

Your Executive Committee took the month of July to finalize a number of exciting events scheduled beginning next month.  The activities vary in length, location and interest area.  We hope you will take advantage of the wonderful offerings for professional development and networking.  Take a look:
