Embrace The Capital Area Association – Make it Your Association
This is your organization, we understand that you can’t make all of the meetings and we also know that we are operating in a new way, many are getting information through the Capital Bulletin, but we still need to have an administrative structure to govern the Association. We have grown to 75 member district with only a few districts in the 8 counties we cover that don’t belong. We are financially strong and have reduced the cost of our workshops. But, we still have to govern and need your input and participation. I have been an officer in the Capital Area Association for several years as has President Meehan, we would both welcome anyone who would like to run for an office who is interested in continuing our success. Please consider attending the November meeting where elections will take place, we don’t want this organization to become limited in scope and control and urge that nominations are open to anyone who wishes to do a good job.
