VP thanked the staff of Phoenix College who helped approve and schedule Del Norte Place meetings for the next 16 months. The in kind meeting space from the college is worth over $7800, and the leadership is appreciative of their outreach to the community. All Association meetings will be held in the Willo Conference Room space.
