Nomination for National Conversation Work Group

Good Morning Neighbor:

I have decided to submit my name for nomination to be a part of the National Conversation Work Group and I would ask  - if you have a moment - please submit my name as well.  It really only takes a couple of minutes - I was shocked that they did not want more information.  Here is is my registration name etc.. below.    My first committee choice is Policy and Practices and my second committee choice is Serving Communities.  All nominations must be in by July 20th.  

It is important that we continue to have a voice in this forum!!

Your neighbor,


Constance L. Thomas (Biemiller), Chair
South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force
Ph. -770-314-6999

As Margaret Mead once said:

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
