Is it Your Turn?
The old adage,"nothing happens til somebody sells something" in a way also applies to the success of our Chapter. For us, " nothing happens 'til members volunteer" and it's never more true than stepping up to serve on the Board. 

The Directorships up this year are Golf  Events and Marketing/Sponsorship. If you are considering volunteering and would like more information, please contact  Ann Borders  , MN Metro Chapter President.

Golfers have to train their swing on the practice tee, then trust it on the course.
