Held in seven locations throughout the state, Region Forums are a great way to connect (and socialize) with other local providers while you get caught up on the latest Association news, issues, and critical information. You are welcome to attend any of the forums held across the state.

Thank you for joining us for Region-Palooza!

Recordings of the January Region-Palooza webinars can be found in the On-Demand Education Library.
