If you have any questions, suggestions or comments regarding upcoming training sessions, please contact President, Joe Petrick at 561-822-1487 or As your board has done in years past, you will be notified via email prior to each training session. The notifications will include times and dates,  training log in information if it is virtual, or the location of the training if it’s in person. You may be asked to RSVP.
