Central Valley members: We’re not saying you don’t have other things to do and your day isn’t busy.  And we’re not suggesting that you don’t care what’s happening with the issues that affect your business. But we are suggesting that maybe you just haven’t gotten around yet to registering for one of our Central Valley Issues Forums being held on Thursday, June 18th in Fresno, Los Banos and Bakersfield.
