President’s Message

Hi CALL Members,

As I write my first President’s letter, the whole world has changed since our last business meeting in February. While we have been sheltering in place for the last few months, some of us may have discovered a few hidden talents we may never know we had.

With this change has come a call for creativity and collaboration. Future CALL members might look back at this issue and see what it was like to live through an pandemic. Let’s show future CALL members how resilient we are! Continue reading President’s Message
