We will be recognizing our 2017 sponsors by inviting them to participate in a Sponsor Fair prior to the meeting. This is a great opportunity for them to meet & greet, and for us to show our support to those who have supported us this season. Please do your best to say hello and express your gratitude to the companies who help make our events and programs a success. Of course, setting up an appointment to meet with them later will also help the cause!
