160k in the bank, we are very well set for the conference
Sending the board to 9-1-1 goes to Washington or National NENA…For the National Conference we get a price break for those who register to National, not so much for 9-1-1 goes to Washington. Each board member needs to send email to Charlie and Hanan; it is important that we make sure we have enough money before we approve everyone.
