Recent Events:

October 3rd:

Unfortunately we had to cancel the workshop we had planned for October 3rd due to low enrollments. Please be sure to register for events in the future so that we don't have to cancel them due to low attendance expectations. Please join us at our next social event, as well as the chapter's general holiday social in November!

September 18th:

We had our first potluck social event and had 9 people attend. It was a great success! The group discussed concerns they have regarding future career paths, education, and their needs as prelicensed members of the profession. The group also decided that monthly social events would be beneficial to everyone. Please come join us for our next social and workshop!

June 20th:

Our first 3000 Club workshop, "The Road to Licensure with Cathy Atkins," was a great success! Thank you to everyone who showed up for the workshop. We learned a lot of information about our licensing process, met new people and networked, and had a great time!
