LTF 3 


6:30 PM 

After reviewing the answers to our meeting start time survey, we have decided to try out a new start time of 6:30 PM. In an effort to try to increase the membership of families and self-advocates and be respectful to agency responsibilities, we want to try this new start time.

A light dinner will be provided.

We will see how convenient this time start is over the first few months, and if need be will alter the time again.
