As the year comes to a close, let’s take some time to celebrate our members’ accomplishments! Illustrators, I apologize if I missed your news, and I definitely don’t want to do it again, so please send your future illustrator related announcements to Virginia Law Manning, EPA Illustrator Coordinator, at vl_law@yahoo. Thank you!
