President's Message

 The 2021-2022 year begins September 20 with a program by Angelica Roberts about three female heroines in her family.  Join us!
The general meetings for September, October and November will be via Zoom.  The Skills Sessions for the entire year will be on Zoom, as will the Board meetings and Special Interest Groups.  If you are a member and need a review of Zoom, log-in and click on the RECORDINGS section of the website.  A brief Zoom intro from last year is there for you to watch. Only members have access to the program recordings.
This is renewal time!  If your are a member, please log-in the MEMBERS area and renew there.  If you are not yet a member but want to join, use the BECOME A MEMBER tab at the left and join that way.
