We Need Your Help!
Our affiliate will need the help of our members to make legal changes that are required to bring our Articles of Incorporation into compliance with state law. Specifically, we will need the participation of a majority of our members in the Business Meeting on February 10 (snow date February 24), 2-2:30 p.m. at Ardmore Presbyterian Church. This week, we have sent each member a message about the issues to be decided and how you can participate in person, by phone, or by proxy. If you can’t find the confidential identifier # we sent you or you have any questions, please contact us at info@NAMIpaMainLine.org. We will be most grateful for your much-needed participation.
Light refreshments will be served. Immediately following our business meeting, we will have our annual Ask the Experts forum. Our experts will be psychiatrists, Dr. Larry Real and Dr. Ellen Berman, and lawyer and advocate, Michael Harper, Esq.)
