Education Committee

The Education Committee is responsible to provide educational opportunities to the membership. The events are usually a half day to 1-2 day events. Based on results of surveys, the committee identifies the highest priorities then delivers events on those subjects. Our commitment is to deliver at least one major educational event each year.
