Recap of Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting happened last Thursday evening and was filled with lots of great conversation, an update on our legislative priorities, and a great discussion of important topics from our wonderful panelists. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our panelists, Delegate Evan Hansen, Julie Archer, Sandra Fallon, Pam Nixon, and Angie Rosser for their informative discussions, as well as Delegate Kayla Young for informing people how to contact their legislators. If you missed it, you can watch it on our Facebook page here

Thanks also to musicians Sandy Sowell and Gerry Collyard for preparing a musical break for us. Unfortunately their internet went down and they were unable to play but we hope they can join us at our next event!
