I hope you've been able to take some time this last month or two in quarantine to relax and enjoy some needed personal time. Hopefully this will be over soon and we can resume some normal activities!
As there are no May events to advertise, you will find next year's calendar in place of our normal "upcoming events" section. Also please note that the AGO National Convention has been canceled for this summer. You'll find several "guest" articles in this newsletter on a variety of subjects from Bill Webber, Jane Johnson, and Lynn Vera, so I hope you enjoy hearing from your colleagues.
This will be our last newsletter until August, and therefore my last Dean's Letter as my term is complete. Thank you for allowing me to serve you these last two years, and I hope you have had as much fun as I have. It has been a pleasure to bring you new and exciting programs, and to hopefully help you grow professionally and build new friendships.
As I've said the last several newsletters, please let me or one of our incoming officers know if you have anything you'd like to loan to the chapter for our September 75th anniversary event - don't worry, it will be returned!
