We hope you are all enjoying the summer and keeping cool! Although the fall seems far away still, it’ll be here before we know it, and we’re starting to work on the Fall newsletter. Once again, we’re looking for your submissions, ideas and updates. If you are aware of any recent (or just neat) happenings you think would be of interest to the membership, consider writing up a summary for the newsletter. Also let us know about any changes, updates, or interesting projects from your agencies. Please send submissions to Tara Becker at by Friday, August 7th.

Thanks, and enjoy the rest of the summer!
