Colorado Springs branch board members met June 14  to develop a vision statement to guide our activities for 2016-2017.

Our Vision:

 To empower ourselves and our community by promoting life-long learning.

Watch this space to see how we will carry out that vision!

On June 6, Lisa Maatz, National Public Policy Director, met with some board members and representatives of the student affiliate at UCCS to discuss ways we can increase involvement among college students so that they recognize the value of membership when they graduate.
