 President’s Message
          I am very pleased to say the conference was very successful. We had presenters from throughout country and over 140 people attended from throughout the state. Several attendees commented our conferences are the best. Before, during and after the state business meeting several chapters asked me for advice regarding attracting new members and revitalizing their chapters. At the state business meeting I told them our chapter is willing to assist them in various ways, which I will explain further at our meeting. At this point in time we are the largest and most active chapter in the state. I also want to thank all the chapter members who helped make this conference a success.

Wampum Museum Field Trip
             The fieldtrip to the Wampum Museum will be held on Sunday, June 3rd. We will meet at the museum at 10 AM. If you wish to attend please sign up at the meeting or call Dave Johnson as soon as possible so we can develop a car pool if necessary.Doc Bayne will discuss the details at this month’s meeting.
