Membership Alert from the NC-SWANA President!

As many of you may already be aware, Donna Revis, Chapter Facilitator for NC SWANA, decided not to renew her contract with the Chapter; effective December 31, 2016.  I and the Board of Directors want to thank Donna for over seven years of valued service to the Board and the membership of NC SWANA.  We wish Donna all the best in her future endeavors; she will most certainly be missed both personally and professionally. 

A committee has been formed to search for a new Facilitator. In the interim, please direct questions and comments to info@ncswana.org; or call Chapter President Chris Stahl at: (828)349-2100. Please see updated full contact information below, and make sure you update the NC SWANA contact information on your vendor list to reflect these changes.  

NC-SWANA c/o Rodney Hamby, P.O. Box 110, Newton, NC  28658.

Thank you for working with us through this transition. And a final heartfelt thank you to Donna Revis for all she has done for the Chapter.

Chris Stahl, President
