The FLISA Membership committee is preparing to publish their "Reasons to Join FLISA" document that they have been working to complete during the last Summer and Winter Meeting. Committee Chairperson Bob Reichert is putting the finishing touches on the document which will, hopefully, be published at the Winter, 2024 meeting. This is some of the important work that takes place during our FLISA meetings. Just another reason FLISA meetings are vital to advancing the cause of Impact Aid.
