I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. We were busy planning the remainder of programing for 2019 and collaborating with other chapters in our region. In June, Valerie and I attended the Region 4 meeting where I was able to present the work we have been doing with our diversity initiative. I received exciting feedback from other chapters who are also focusing on diversity and inclusion. These Chapters are interested in working with us on this initiative. Please keep your eyes open for our PDD registration and our elections that will be coming to your inbox soon.
I hope to see you all a the September Chapter meeting where we will be presenting the state of the chapter.
