in the Northeast by adding staff and resources to this office. I was
pleased to join the office as Regional Program Assistant in October and as

Officer for the Northeast!

Once we are settled we will get back to our specialized newsletter
updates, in the meantime we did not want you all to miss out on some
valuable upcoming events and news!!

Also, please note that Kim will be away for her wedding April 30th-May
