Presidents Message – February 2022

Welcome to February!

Winter has fully arrived to South Louisiana – enjoy it while here, it won’t stay cold for too long.  Also we have entered the carnival season, and Mardi Gras is just a few weeks away.  It is still our hope that as we enter Spring we can return to meeting in person.  But know that we will continue to offer an option to join our live sessions online, as it helps to reach more members, and offers a convenient method to attend.

February Technical Seminar

This Tuesday, February 8, 2022, we will hold our February technical seminar.  The seminar will be online, and will start at 12:00 pm.  Registration is required to receive the Zoom join link.
