To the Society:
We're going to start team-building again, and we need all your talent! Technical and feature writers, illustrators, photographers, print or web designers, public relations pros, educators, and those disturbing multi-talented folks, we need you all. Help us identify key contacts and opportunities, fine tune procedures, and prioritize our activities.

Let us know whether you, or someone you know, should serve among the ranks of Communication Consultants. Chapters often need help with quick turnaround items like PSAs, Press Releases, finding the perfect photo, articles for newsletters and the media, etc. We need moderators for web-based discussion groups. If we work together, we can give each other what we need, when we need it.

Opportunities to contribute are vast. In addition to standard Communications work for the Society, we need help preparing content for:
   Sabal Minor, Rosalind Rowe editor, ( Deadlines the 15th of the Odd Months
