I have been somewhat bereft in my duties as President with respect to our monthly Board meetings (generally held the Thursday before the first Saturday of the month): these meetings are open to all PCA members, especially Appalachian Region members. I have been negligent in that I have not routinely promoted the Board meetings nor have I widely distributed the agenda. As always, please refer to our website for the calendar of Region events, including meetings. If you would like to receive an email of the Board meeting agenda Monday the week of the meeting, please let me know via email: president@aprpca.org. If you have a topic for discussion before the board, feel free to contact me via email for inclusion in the agenda.
