FROM THE CHAIR
From the Chair:
Here we are gearing up for special events as we move into August.Chapter presidents are busy preparing for the new schedule of events for each local chapter. If you are not aware which chapter is yours, please check the website OR contact me. We have seen good growth this past year and are anticipating even more this new Association year. Our retired leaders and members have done an excellent job in keeping programs and activities moving. If you know of someone who has retired, please invite them to join. Remember: “All of us together is better!" (Read elsewhere in this edition of our work in raising funds for the scholarships.)
Of course, you will want to keep your eye on the up coming elections which are promising to be rather exciting. All I ask of you is that you keep informed of those seeking election and how she/he is/was a friend of education. As always, get involved or there is no room for complaining.
As we come to the close of the "dog days" of summer, be ready to serve. Some things never change.
