Jennifer says, "I hope to see our local Astronology readers at an HR/NY meeting soon, and if you're not a member, please join us! The ROI of an HR/NY membership is 85 times. You can't afford to miss out on annual benefits worth over $8,000!"

We're also excited to announce that Astron's Brendan Williams is continuing for another year in his role as HR/NY Vice President of Finance and Treasurer. Congratulations, Brendan!
