December 2021 Chapter Meeting
The December chapter meeting was called to order on December 9, 2021 at 2:05 PM EST by President Shirley Tudhope.
President Shirley Tudhope opened the meeting announcing the executive board voted to dissolve the chapter because of the lack of volunteers on board positions and committee chair roles going forward.
