I would like to “Thank each Branch President, each Branch Volunteer Leader and each member” for their participation in helping our Chapter grow to better serve our “Consumer” members. As with each of us, we have the responsibility to provide for our families and any discretionary funds have to be wisely utilized.

“Thanks” to our Past President, Gary, for continuing in the role of Newsletter editor extraordinaire.

“Thanks” to Jason Brown for Volunteering to be our 2018 Fall Professional Development Conference Project Manager. Jason has engaged with Oregon’s OPMAB Project Management group so both organizations will combine into one Professional Development Conference this Fall.  

As Directors, we look for your input and guidance in the events PMIWV provides.

Take Care Clyde
