He will talk about his experience in community engagement and youth development, and will answer questions.
The nominating committee will present a slate of candidates, for consideration when we elect our officers at our meeting on Monday, March 27. NOTE: To vote in March, you must have attended at least one of the prior 2017 meetings if you did not attend in either October or November of 2016.
