It's time for the NCS North Central Chapter's fall meeting. This year we will be gathering in beautiful downtown Sioux Falls, SD.
Ken Alvine is riding herd on the event and has asked that you contact HIM directly about hotel reservations. He's managed to get a terrific rate but he needs to know who among us needs a room and for how many and needs to know by August 15 (not later)! Contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the details:
