The February 2015 Annual Distributor's Show and business meeting has completed and was a big success. 4 new members and one re-instated member were accepted. They can be reviewed in the February 2015 posted minutes. Our next show will be held in the OKC area and has been moved to the August 2016 meeting due to adverse weather conditions experienced the last few years. The May 2015 meeting  and education opportunities will be held in the OKC area but the exact location and the actual class(s) are still being resolved and will be posted when determined.
