Everyone is invited. We want everyone who can't make it in person to join us on your phone, tablet, laptop, smartphone, PC, or Mac. You are all welcome to join in. We'll meet at the Doubletree Hotel conference room for our 9am meeting to conduct our annual meeting to cover all current events, budget, plans for 2016, future planning, and 2016-2017 elections.  There are several important positions open which we hope will be fulfilled by a qualified volunteer for a term of 2 years.
