REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the National Board Meeting & Long Range Planning Retreat January 19-21, 2023 in Tempe, Arizona.  Please take note of the schedule details and location below, and we hope to see you in Tempe! 

We hope most of you will attend in person; the ability to interact with your colleagues after the last two years is so invigorating and motivating!!  For those unable to travel, we are offering the option to participate remotely for parts of the meeting.  As such, separate registration is offered for in-person and remote attendees.

It is vitally important for all members to participate in the retreat on Friday, January 20th to give input in developing the new strategic plan. The strategic plan presents an opportunity for ARCS to look to the future so we can be a viable, strong, premier organization. The Long Range Planning Committee will be working collaboratively with the chapters as well as the national board, so we need to hear your thoughts.
