Laura Richard Region V Region V Report to RSAC 1 August 2012 Thoughts for RSAC TAC is changing....what does RSAC need to do to Change??? Suppose to align Goals to Strategic Plan But what are RSACs, not just VP Member Services Goals and Expectations???

So....what do we need to do to move forward???
