Luci Hanson- NAME Volunteer

Welcome baaaak….

Well I did the NAME thing again....I volunteered to help NAME.   Not that I am alone in the volunteer category.  99.9% of what happens at NAME is done by volunteers.  WHAT A GROUP!!!!  

No one on the Board of Trustees is paid for anything but the expenses they incure on behalf of NAME

Our website adn Yahoo group volunteers don't get a penny for their hours of work on behalf of NAME. 

The Regional Coordinators, State Reps and regional website editors don't get a dime for their efforts...
