    Rain, Sleet AND Snow!

    Rain, sleet AND snow did not keep us from having a successful, fun and educational Mid-Year Meeting at Lake Morey! Despite the weather and travel delays, the event did live up to its expectations.  The CLE’s were various and plentiful and the networking never ceased. Many thanks to our exhibitors and sponsors who made the event extra special and of course to all of our loyal presenters and attendees, without whom we would not have had our 62nd Mid-Year Meeting!  Until next time, please enjoy the story and photos from the event HERE.
