Are you leaving your post as a Home & School executive member? We ask all outgoing executive members to find someone to fill their position for a two year term, and help the new rep better understand their role. June is an excellent time to elect new executive and board members to your Home and School Associations. The Federation provides training for individual Home and Schools, and will return to larger group training sessions when health protocols allow.
