Next Chapter Council Weekend:

Hosted by the Santa Clara Valley Chapter

Why should I attend Chapter Council?
1. You will connect with, and learn from, other CNPS members from around the state
2. You get to contribute to important decisions that impact our organization
3. Through social events and field trips, you will meet like-minded people and get to know a new area of the state - it's fun!

Hope to see you there!
