Fall Committee and Subsection Training and Trustee Meeting
In-Person at Campbell's Lake Chelan, September 29-October 1 
We are very excited to announce that after two years of waiting we are finally having an in-person officer training for section volunteers!

Please join us for the 2021 Fall Committee Officer Training and Trustee Meeting to be held September 29 - October 1 at Campbell's Resort on Lake Chelan.  Find out what being an officer of a section committee or subsection entails: what are your responsibilities as an officer and what tools are available to you to keep our members engaged, informed and excited about our association!  

While we would hope that everyone would attend in-person, we know that some of you may have concerns about gathering together or do not have the support from your employers to travel. On our registration form there is a box for you to check if you would like to attend virtually. If there is enough interest from all of you, we can provide this service. It won't be the same as meeting in-person but its the next best option. Just check the box on the registration and let us know.
