Note: Health and safety requirements dictated by CDC, state and local guidelines and venue protocols at the time of our Annual Meeting will be applied.

The DEAR Board is looking for engaged individuals to serve on the board. We meet 3 or 4 times a year for about one hour and have virtual capabilities, so living local is not a requirement. If you are interested, read on.
