Thank you:  We appreciate the hard work our speakers put into their presentations.  This year,   all of our speakers came from the local BV community, with members of ASA and MABVP well-represented.  Thanks to our behind-the-scenes support team, the conference was not only well-received, it was profitable.  If you are a long-range planner, the 25th Annual BV Conference is tentatively scheduled for WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2015.

Transition: Dennie O’Leary is retiring.  After 16 years of coordinating our local meetings, she plans to remodel old houses and spend time with her grandchildren.   We will welcome a new Executive Director in the coming months.  Please be patient during the transition!
