2023-2024 Representative Assembly
Some buildings are strongly represented, while others remain unrepresented. TJay and the Executive Board is committed to any unrepresented building, AND we are seeking individuals willing to ensure their building has access and representation both on our Representative Assembly (the primary governing board of our local association), and in-building. We are willing to work with you as your time allows.
