A great time was had by all and in addition to honoring several of our members both past and present we also developed the foundation for our 2017 strategic plan. Current members were gifted items from our new C2PLA swag line.
Additionally one of the most important part of Friday’s retreat was discussing the transition of leadership for our subcommittee and main co-chairs. To that end we are happy to announce that we have several candidates to fill these open seats.
