May Meeting
May 9, 2015

Business Meeting
Meet Your New Board

This will be a networking meeting. The new NCPA Board will be introduced, there will be a brief annual business meeting, a wrap-up discussion of the Book Awards Banquet, and Amy Rogers will provide an overview of the IBPA Conference.

Meetings are held at:

7418 Stock Ranch Road (near Greenback & Sylvan)
Citrus Heights, CA 95621

Meetings are held in the "Sun Terrace" room on the third floor, NOT the first floor room we have been using for the past several years.

To get to the third floor room, take the elevator that is to the left of the front desk. The Sun Terrace room is across the hallway from the elevator. Look for signs or someone to greet you and point you in the right direction.

Here are some photos (provided by our Communications Director, Ken Umbach) to help orient you (click to enlarge).
