Schwartz; VOE Board Vice Chair Edward Schoenbaum; VOE Board Members Jeffrey M. Allen, Richard Goodwin, Ashley Hallene, Donna J. Jackson, Kerry R. Peck,
As our Division moves forward in this bar year, we have many opportunities for you -- the 60,000 SLD members – to share your experiences, knowledge, and insights.
