I am setting up a training session / training sessions with all Chapter Presidents. Melba Bartush our State Registrar sent out the first sets of documents for registrars on the new 2020/2021 requirements from National.
As soon as we get through the holidays, I am setting up some on-line workshops that will run through our website. Bare with me. I am train-able. Shooting the video is not the issue. Setting up the "members only area" of the web page is my issue. If you know how to do this and you want to give me a hand, give me a call.
The Membership directory is out. If you did not receive your copy, please contact your Chapter President.
Many things going on behind the scenes as we work on goals and projects starting in the fall.
Stay safe, be smart.
Best to all,
Jo Lee Potts
