September 2017

That means that your Council’s Meetings and activities should settle back into some semblance of routine, also!  If your Council has not done so, make certain that Forms 185 (Report of Officers), 365 (Service Program Personnel Report) and 1295 (Semi-Annual Council     Audit Report) have been completed and submitted to the appropriate distribution list.
