    • Lisa – I apologize for not responding sooner. I haven’t been good at keeping this blog updated. BUSY! BUSY! BUSY! I have been active in CHART for about two years. Not as a full blown member but through a previous boss. We hosted a meeting mid 2012 at our training facility. CHART has been a wonderful experience!
