At the September 2008 General Meeting, JGSGP Members shared their experiences at the 2008 Conference in Chicago. Then the group turned their attention to planning and organizing for the 2009 Conference.

 

The JGSGP overall Conference Co-Chair, David Mink (267-318-7092  daminker@aol.com) asked all JGSGP Committee Chairs and Co-Chairs to meet with interested members volunteering to help.
