2. For each speaker, Treasurer of the Board (Jeff) will arrange for a $25 donation to Polio Plus on behalf of the speaker. The Admin Committee will email the Treasurer with the names of the speakers at the end of each month. Please ensure that the person thanking the speaker mentions this donation as well.

POD CO-LEADS:
