May 31 - June 2
In the course of our hectic day/week/months it can become increasingly difficult to find the time to take a moment and reflect on the crucial role we play and the impact we make.
While you provide the support and nourishment to all those around you, how often do you receive that support and nourishment back?We want you to know, we see you! We recognize the trials, tribulations and triumphs that happen daily.
And though we aren’t there to celebrate, support, and encourage in the moment, we look forward to having the opportunity to share all of this and more with you at our State Conference.
Please join us in receiving some of what you so generously give every single day.
