A Message from the Chairperson
We are excited to bring you this website and all its features and benefits.
The Granite State Website and the Granite State Chronicle Newsletter offer valuable information to the membership on current events and future activities. Both publications offer members a direct avenue to communicate with the Chapter leadership team and between peers and colleagues.
We announced the development of both the Newsletter and the Website in October 2015, and officially launched both means of communication in January 2016. Since their conception both media have been well received by the membership, and our goal is to continuously enhance and improve them across the board so we bring meaning and value to our readership.
The website is typically updated on a weekly basis. Make sure you visit the site frequently to keep up with the lastest changes and updates. The Newsletter is published monthly, except for July and August, or more frequently when important information cannot wait for the regular edition.
