Spring is right around the corner, so let’s start the season with new education and more opportunities for advancement. We have selected several willing volunteers to organize and assist in promoting regional quarterly workshops. The new programs along with a description of the subject matter to be presented in each workshop will be announced in the near future.

  • Lynsey Camara from PuroClean Home Rescue.
