April 12 Lunch Meeting open for registration!
IRWA Leadership: the Chapter and Beyond
IRWA depends on volunteers to make things work. This presentation will challenge all chapter members to get involved in the chapter leadership and other possible opportunities in a Regional, National and/or International function. Past and present leaders will probably be called upon to provide a testimonial of how such volunteer participation has been of personal and professional benefit to each. And be prepared to “volunteer”, maybe even in the military sense.” Present By: Brad K. Thomas, SR/WA, R/W-RAC,
