Hello CIT members!
I just returned from Tucson, Arizona where the board met for two and a half days working on the strategic plan. We had a great time and it was very productive. I hope that you had a great end of the semester for those of you who teach. Now is the time when many are looking forward to vacations and enjoying some relaxation time.
Looking at our membership report:

Please be patient with me during that period.
