Summer greetings to you! It’s time to refresh and rejuvenate, switch up your routine and allow your mind to clear and wander. Let’s meet at Summer Dialogue and share our Summer discoveries. Register in the next week for early-bird registration.

While at the National Leadership Conference last week, state officers heard about the National Standing Committees.

I got to wondering if most ACDA members are aware of these committees and their work. I share a few here for you to learn more.
