Calling All Members ...

Calling All Members .... It's that time of year again.  Time for the Annual Meeting.  This is the time when we all can make a difference in how SCIL functions.  All dues paying members have a vote in the decision making process and the operations of SCIL, since it is a Member run Organization.  Please plan to attend the meeting which is traditionally held mid-January.  The final confirmed date will be sent to all members via email soon.  This is when the Board of Directors elections are held as well as the Officer elections.
