The board welcomed Herrin adviser Sami Goetting to our ranks last night as we held our first planning meeting for this year's Winter Conference.

As planning gets under way, I encourage you to reach out to one of the board members if you have ideas for a session or a speaker. We are working hard to make this a great experience for everyone. I will post more information here as the program fills out, so be sure to set up a notification for the website.

Golden Dozen deadline and the dues deadline will be here soon, so get those books in the mail to Gina Shook with the entry form from the website and send your dues check to me, Cathy Wall.

Wishing you all a beautiful and productive fall season,
