Today’s End of the Year Zoom meeting was absolutely wonderful (June, 2021). It was beautifully organized, informational, uplifting in many segments and I congratulate you and all who orchestrated it. I am sure all who watched it and participate in ALSJ feel much like I do. I am proud to be a member and watched how our members, Committee chairs and the ALSJ Board led us through this challenging year with amazing outcomes and results.
