    • Offer two workshops exclusively for our ESP members on a variety of topics to help enhance their careers. We also provide a dinner and workshop on National ESP Day.
    • Host a yearly celebration for our local association presidents. These hard-working individuals deserve our recognition for their dedication to their local association members.
