The expo is a chance for members to connect with business partners and see the products and services they have to offer. New this year was the “ask the expert table” where members could watch demonstrations and ask in depth questions about products and services. Every member and guest in attendance went home with a prize donated by the business partners, and one lucky attendee won the grand prize donated by the chapter.
