Ringing in the New Year is cause for celebration. The New Year is the perfect occasion to appreciate all the good things that the past year has given to us, and all the good things that are yet to come. Our Chapter organized many successful activities in 2018, and we were delighted to share our members momentous accomplishments, milestones, and progress throughout the year. Please continue to share your news with us so we can celebrate and support each other. As we enter the New Year, may it bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements and a lot of new inspirations on your life.
