I was told when I started coming to the Council Meetings that I would find a group of people committed to sharing ideas with each other, and helping each other with requests for ideas, opinions, and with good ideas.  I’ve found exactly that, smart people with a great attitude and good ideas. I come home from each meeting with new concepts and ideas that I can forward on to others in my organization, and a sense of renewed energy for change.
