A New Day

SAIL is beginning a new chapter as our former coordinator Emily Rogers has moved on to a new job at the Washington State DD Council. She will be stopping by SAIL one more time this Tuesday. We, all of us thank Emily for all her hard work for us and wish her well at the DD Council. Please stop by SAIL on Tuesday to help us say farewell to Emily.

A new support coordinator for SAIL will be announced soon. A few of our members including our Chair Anthony have been helping with the interviewing process. We are excited to see where this lead us.

In addition to a new coordinator at the next meeting we will be continuing the discussion on where we would like to see SAIL go in 2015, reviewing our legislative agenda and getting a report from DDA
