Friends of NCBDDD Webinar: New EC Orientation Webinar
We will be welcoming a new slate of Executive Committee (EC) members in January. This year we will be opening up our orientation webinar for new EC members to any interested member. The orientation webinar will be held on January 10 at 1pm ET. We invite you to log on to learn about the roles that EC members play. This will help you get a preview of what EC service looks like and ways that you can be more involved as a general member. Throughout the year, the EC will be calling on the membership to support more dynamic communication efforts, including ways to better integrate with each other and NCBDDD leadership.
