Greetings from your NSVFA office! Memberships continue streaming in the office daily at a heavy pace. As of this morning, over 140 departments have already renewed their memberships!
As with every article including my last as President, I hope this finds everyone safe and doing well. As I finish out my final days leading this association, I want to say thank you.
