Subject: Addition to NGC LDS Committee

I am pleased to announce that Linda McLendon of Dudley, North Carolina is joining our NGC LDS Committee as Reading Chairman.
Linda currently serves as Landscape Design Schools Chairman for The Garden Club of North Carolina and Landscape Design Schools Chairman for South Atlantic Region and as such, her contact info is listed on pages 2 & 5 of our LDS Directory – Caroline, please add the Reading Chairman position to page 1 of the Directory for your update that is currently in progress.
I worked with Linda, as did a couple others from our committee, as she successfully launched North Carolina’s first Landscape Design School in nine years.  She has Course II coming up in August.
Linda will be at convention in Philadelphia, but arrives on the 23rd so she will not be able to attend our committee meeting.  I hope those of you who are there will have an opportunity to meet her at some point.
Since I have handled the Reading Chairman’s duties for the past year, I will work closely with Linda on the transition.  Provision of articles and exams is current.  There is only one approved Course which has not yet been sent these materials and that is Missouri which does not take place until late July.
Linda, thank you for saying “yes.”  Congratulations on your new position.  I know you will be a big help to us.
