Thank you to our vendors and sponsors and our members for making this event happen. Also - a great big shout out to our Members at Large Committee - Linda Debner, Maura Albrecht and Sue Wadsten for their organization and hard work. We are looking forward to a great summer - our speakers have been confirmed and we have dedicated one month to networking and meeting other members. This month of networking is in response to feedback from you - please keep your ideas coming. We are also anticipating our annual board retreat which will be held on July 30th. It is a time for the board to reflect on the past year, look at what is currently being done and discuss ideas for the future. Please let one of us know if you have any ideas or suggestions.
