Member Spotlights

December 2018 — This special project was initiated by Carol Mutter and began during her presidency in early 2017. Members are called upon to participate in this project by writing their abbreviated bio of what they wish to share. Information about the member being “spotlighted” is not allowed to be added to their bio without that member’s permission. Prior to being published, the bio is proofed for grammatical edits by the Friday Morning Message (FMM)/News publishing team.

The list below reflects members who are scheduled to be spotlighted, those who already have been, and a separate list at the very bottom is of members who have declined the offer.
