September Austin ROSC Announcements


September Announcements!

Good Morning Austin ROSC Stakeholders,

We've made it through another summer and September is upon us!  This month our Learning Day event will take place instead of our monthly meeting.  We will resume our regular monthly meeting in October.  Please register to attend our 2nd Annual Learning Day on September 22nd and earn 4 hours of FREE CEU's!  This year's sponsor is Georgetown Behavioral Health.  Our meetings are held at the Austin Community College- Highland Business Center (HBC) on the 4th Friday of every month from 12pm - 1:30pm.  Also, nominations continue to be open for Chairperson.  We will be voting at our October 27th General meeting.  Leadership Team descriptions are available on our website.  Raul Garcia's term will be up in October and he will move into the position of 'Past Chair', so we will continue to have his support!  

With Gratitude,
Elizabeth Henry
