Winter may seem like it will not go away, but spring is on the way!  That's not the only change coming to ORPA!  The trustees have been working hard behind the scenes and here are a few tidbits to keep you updated:

STOP THE PRESSES!   ORPA TRUSTEES ANNOUNCE A NEW LIFE MEMBERSHIP RATE FOR 2018 AND ONLY 2018!  Save $100 with this new life membership rate!  At their last meeting, ORPA trustees wanted to increase membership.  What better way to increase membership than by discounting life membership for 2018.  Till the end of the year, life membership will be reduced from $500 to $400.   Hurry and take advantage of this season of change and you can save, save, save!

High power is back!   We have a new high power director and she's already secured one match date in June.   She is looking for high power people so check out her intro article, Highpower 2018 ---- From the Director.  In it you will find a link to a short Google form that will allow her to collect information about you so we can keep you informed about upcoming events.   

Sometimes questions come in too fast to handle and become a distraction.  Our past president, Marty Capito addresses that issue with regard to the return of highpower.   You can check out: An Open Letter To The Highpower Community  where he asks for your cooperation in helping our new highpower director by minimizing distractions.
