From the Director

Welcome to the Director’s page, I hope that the information below will help you to navigate the exciting conferences that are available to you! Also remember that our generous chapter often allots a budget to help members defray some of the costs of attending some of these meetings. If that is the case, there will be instructions explaining how to submit receipts to be reimbursed for specific meeting costs. If at any time you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at ionemixon@gmail.com or see me at any Lunch ‘n Learn and I’ll be glad to visit personally with you.  Ione
