For those of you who could not make the 2017 Annual Educational Conference, we missed you. Life surely gets in the way of stuff like this sometimes, but we hope to see you at the next meeting, which is tentatively scheduled to be in Mount Pleasant, SC on November 10. Details to follow!
As one of only thirteen chapters in the U.S., and the only one in the southeastern states, let’s keep up the good work serving all of the LNCs in the region.
