STC Florida 2022 (and a bit of 2023) in Review
As we begin 2023, as president of the Florida chapter I wanted to take this time to celebrate 2022! In a year with hurricanes and finding a new pandemic norm, I am incredibly proud of our community, both long-time members and new faces.
I want to thank our chapter officers for their challenging work planning events, offering services, and keeping our community on track.
