I really wanted to thank you for your interest in NLEN and sure hope you can make the upcoming AGM - Friday, May 15th, 2 pm, Botanical Gardens. We are also looking for solid Steering Committee as we have some funding and I could use the support as Coordinator and Project Lead. Eh hem, we could use a liaison with NAACAP ;) Anyhoo...see our AGM info below, and if you are interested in receiving our e-update, please go here, scroll down the page and input your email in the box to the right. http://www.nlen.ca/
