This year our annual Golf Tournament will be scheduled during the month of October. We have received requests to avoid the mid-summer heat/vacation times, and want to accommodate as many of our attendees as possible! If you can participate as a volunteer for this event (golf expertise not required) please contact Golf Tournament Committee Chair Jim Saulnier, CPP ASIS VP Region 5A, or Scott Fischer, CPP, PSP, Volunteer Coordinator.
Thank you for your continued dedication to our National Capital Chapter, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
