Strategic Planning Session Results Released

During this week's Town Hall Meeting, members got to learn all about the results of the Strategic Planning Session results and now this will impact the direction of the RSA in the next 5 years.

While at Sk8Expo, over 100 members sat together and helped come up with suggestions on where they would like to see the RSA move forward and address.
