The 2019-2020 NARMC Auxiliary officers were recently inducted during the auxiliary's April meeting. The officers were inducted using bubbles to symbolize the distinctively different positions that help keep the auxiliary running smoothly throughout the year.
"A bubble reflects many different colors. Each of these colors is exquisite. However, when they float in the air weightless, they become unequaled in beauty. Likewise, our Auxiliary consists of many types of people. Each person is unique, and when we band together, we become a group unequaled in strength," Carol Evans told the officers. "It is my hope that each one of you will support your officers and committee chairs by serving on a committee when asked and bring new ideas to the table to support your leadership and this Auxiliary."
