We all look forward to serving the membership this year.

Tri-state’s annual Fall Conference was held November 11-13. As always, it was a great event. Look for pictures from the conference in the next issue of News & Views.

Also, it’s never too early to think about serving Tri-state next year by running for office. Feel free to talk to any of the current members of the Board to get all the questions you may have about serving answered. (It is really more attainable than you might imagine!)

I hope everyone has a wonderful fall semester!
