Approximately 35 ASSP leaders from the twenty chapters in Region 1 came together for a reception in the beautiful Seaview Rotunda. Long Beach Chapter President and Region 1 Deputy Regional Vice President, Chris Rainwater, greeted delegates to the meeting and provided each with a welcome “swag bag” of goodies. ASSP President and CEO Jennifer M. McNelly joined the ROC in Long Beach.
