On November 7th we will be holding our annual Board of Directors elections. If you have an interest in running for the Board or would like to nominate someone, contact Nancy Rich: firstname.lastname@example.org prior to November 4th. It is important that a representative from each member company come out and cast a ballot since the Board of Directors is an integral part of your association.
We will also be celebrating our scholarship winners. Thanks to the generous support of our membership and funds raised at various events during the past year; we are able to award over $40,000 in scholarships this year. Scholarship winners have worked hard, and many will be present, so please come out and join us to honor these scholarship winners, place your vote and enjoy Sarah Spain stories.
