Chapter Meeting Notes

¡Hola! Olá! We held our Chapter meeting on Tuesday, September, 17th at Mid-Pacific Institute. Highlights from the meeting included a briefing from Paul Chandler and Rachel Mamiya Hernández on the AATSP 2015 Conference and Chapter Assembly in Denver, CO. Additionally, we discussed ideas for chapter events and elected a new Vice-President--Olulani García, who teachers Spanish at Saint Louis School. ¡Felicidades, Olu! We also held the drawing for the free membership and Paul Chandler drew the lucky number.
