Tax Status and Updates
by Sue Miholer, OCW Business Manager

We currently have 360 members. Not only do members get a significant discount for conferences, they also receive a monthly e-newsletter with information that is not available to the other 500+ recipients of our print newsletter, which is published three times a year in conjunction with our one-day conferences.
Our new fiscal year begins October 1, and we are set to end the current fiscal year on a high note.
