Call for Volunteers
ISA Hamilton is looking for a few additional volunteers to help us run our programs.   In the past couple years, we had a few of our long-time exec members step back when they retired, so we are looking for some fresh blood.  Like what we do as a section? Please consider offering a few hours of your time each month to help us with our expo, golf tournament, student programs, and dinner meetings.
Running our local ISA section does not take a lot of work, but it helps if we can spread it amongst a few more volunteers. Interested?  Please contact our section president Brent Killins at (905)-812-2247 or president@isahamilton.com

Thanks for reading,
ISA Hamilton
