November Webinar: Midyear Review

Join us on Thursday, November 16 at 8:00 PM EST, for an informative fraternal webinar entitled 

Midyear Review: Succeeding or Struggling?

In this webinar, we will talk about where councils should be at midyear. We will showcase some best practices and significant accomplishments. We will have a frank discussion of some common issues and challenges, along with ways to address them. And we will talk about important things to consider for the remainder of the year. Attendees will be well prepared to earn the Star Award for their councils.
