President’s Message: February 2024 JAG’s Mission Is Your Mission

by Bob Duthaler

I hope this message finds you all well as we embrace the month of February.  It’s an honor to connect with you through our monthly newsletter and share some updates and reflections on the incredible work that JAG continues to do in promoting access and community engagement.  Let’s hope the Groundhog was right and spring is just around the corner.

As we navigate through the challenges and opportunities that each month brings, it’s crucial to acknowledge the dedication and passion that both our board and members bring to the table.  Your commitment to fostering communication, connectivity, and community building is the heartbeat of JAG, and it’s what makes our organization truly special.  Stay engaged with JAG via the website, newsletter and email to make your life easier.

In the spirit of collaboration and inclusivity, I encourage all members to actively participate in upcoming events, workshops, and initiatives.  Our shared goal is to enhance access to information and empower individuals to express themselves within our community.  By working together, we can create a more vibrant and connected community in which we serve.

Looking ahead, we have some exciting projects in the pipeline that will further strengthen our mission.  From innovative technological advancements to community outreach programs, JAG is committed to staying at the forefront of providing accessible platforms for all:
