Combined Council Committees Meeting

Posted on

 

North Star Committee –

Hope you are all well and enjoying the nice weather to kick off June. Attached to this email is a postcard for our Combined Council Committees Meeting on June 22nd. This is a great opportunity for us to give and receive feedback from both Council and other District volunteers, as well as share best practices, network, and ultimately be a part of the betterment of our Council direction. Please attend if you are in town and able. The link below should be used to register for the event.

As always, I appreciate everything that each of you does for the North Star District. Please let me know how I can assist you. If you could forward this on to anyone working on your committees I would appreciate that as well. This would be a great way to begin cultivating your own succession plan!!
