Our Chapter

This Cascade Chapter of the ASSE has a lot to offer to the members.  We explore the workings of the chapter, explore the Executive Committee, see minutes and newsletters and find out who are members of the chapter.

To begin with, there are two parts of the Executive Committee.  There is the elected group of the committee and the appointed members of the committee. The chapter will list both and aloe you to get to know each chapter member.

The chapter will also list the chapter meeting minutes and the monthly newsletters so that members and others can see what the chapter is up to.
