A Message from the Chairperson
The Granite State Website and the Granite State Chronicle Newsletter offer valuable information to each member and all our friends on current events and future activities. Both publications offer users a direct avenue to communicate with the Chapter leadership team and between peers and colleagues.
Both publications have just received a new "face" as we are continuously update the format and presentation to be more attractive.
Our goal is to update the website on a weekly basis, but occasionally it might be bi-weekly. Make sure you visit the site frequently so you may keep up with the latest news.
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and always be safe. See everything at our September 6, 2017 meeting
