This Meeting is Green
The Chapter has “gone green” by converting to electronic versions only of the speakers’ handouts. Registrants will receive a link to the handouts via email two weeks prior to the meeting. Participants can pre-print handouts from the web site or, if they choose, bring their electronic device to the session. Join us in our environment-friendly effort.
