The policy sub-committee will meet Wednesday.

Honor those who help you out each work day.
Now is the time of year to recognize those people at work that you can't do without - adminstrative professionals. Wednesday is their day, and it's up to all of us to recognize the hard work they do day in and day out that makes a job a bit easier.
