HAVE YOU TALKED WITH YOUR COWORKERS ABOUT TOTEM YET?
We need you to help keep TOTEM strong.
TOTEM has a small group of very dedicated folks who serve on the Board of Directors, however, we need everyone to help recruit new members into TOTEM! Member involvement is essential to our success and that is where you come in. We are asking all our current TOTEM members to become “TOTEM Ambassadors”.
Would you help us make TOTEM stronger than ever?
