General Body Meeting March 2017



We will be having our general body meeting next month on Friday March 10th at the University of Detroit Mercy-McNichols Campus. This meeting is very important because it will be our last general body meeting for this year. I would like to see all of you there if at all possible. Brian Thomas “The Professional Development Trailblazer”, will be our speaker, and I would like to have a great turnout for this event. For more information on Brian, please go to Dinner will be served at.

Also, we are collecting toiletries for the Detroit Phoenix House that evening. Please bring items and encourage others to do the same as well.

I appreciate everyone’s cooperation and contribution in making this event and year a success.
