We trust that members and guests have had access to great speakers/topics throughout these many years. For many, earning CPEs through attendance to our meetings is an extra perk. All of this has historically been offered at no cost to our members and guests. However, as our chapter continues to move forward, we have operational costs that need to be paid for to continue our chapter. If you find value in your Dayton Infragard chapter and the information offered, we would ask that you consider a donation ($5 -$10-$20) to help keep us going. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so any donations you make are tax deductible. We especially hope those receiving our 2 hour CPE certificate will consider a donation. Parking is free. If you come off I-675 and Fairfield, stay on the upper parking lot to the right. The entrance to the far right of the Nutter Center. You are on the
same level as the Berry Room. It is not mandatory to RSVP (to infragard_info [AT] wright [DOT] edu), but it helps with the count. These meeting are open to the public and suitable for any organization.
