PCRP Implementation Task Force Members Needed

January 6, 2015 Update:

Thank you to the members who responded to the original message issued (below). Unfortunately, not enough members expressed a willingness to be on the PCRP Implementation Task Force and more members are needed! Without more volunteers, it will be near-impossible to move forward with this vital program to serve AVLIC and the communities AVLIC members serve.
