The more than 90 members from 43 chapters enjoyed the back-to-basics agenda reflected by the theme: Growing and Strengthening Your Chapter. Sessions presented at LTC covered training in creating chapter websites, newsletters and promotional pieces, along with legal and record-keeping topics. Ideas on planning educational events and training were shared, as well as chapter success stories and challenges.
