Jonathan Morse, our Website/Social Media Committee Chairperson and Mary Lou Smith, Membership Committee have worked diligently with Pritchard Websites, our web master to implement two new programs over the past two years. The first is the Featured Designer, showcasing one member and their work each quarter.
