Interest Groups Update by Cherril Peabody

Our Showcase meeting in September was delightful, but it didn’t result in a lot of sign-ups for Interest Groups. Therefore, I thought I would mention again some groups that would welcome new members. Participating in interest groups is a great way to make new friends and expand your horizons!
