Happy Spring, everyone! We had a Volunteer meeting this last month that went really well. I want to thank all of you that were able to make it. For those of you that were stuck at home due to the weather, these meetings are going to become more of a regularity for NAMI Spokane, so we’ll hope to see you at the next one. We had great comments and questions that were all constructive, and the main points brought forth will become the priority for our Strategic Plan of 2017. We could not do what we do without our volunteers. They are the very foundation of NAMI Spokane, and we simply would not be who we are without them. The Board thanks every one of our volunteers for what you do, and we hope that this year will be one of learning, positive change, and growth. We could not do what we do without YOU!!
