2016 Preview:

We will meet this November to set our calendar.  If you have suggestions, ideas of what you would like your association to do – please send them to me ASAP and I will share them with the board at our planning meeting.

We will publish a 2016 directory at the beginning of the year.  Watch for our membership letter in January to explain how you can update your information for this publication.
