President-Elect Donna spoke about the results of the questionnaire she had sent out, named her Board for the 2018-2019 year and outlined her plans. For those of you who missed her power point presentation, it is set out here. It follows the strategic vision of the RI President and shows how this filters down to plans for next year.
