When you enter the front double doors go to the offices on the left. You will enter the door where the old Indian Center offices were. WE ARE NOT DOWNSTAIRS. WE ARE IN THE ADELINE GARCIA CONFERENCE ROOM. The front office doors are locked at 6:00.

Please park in the main parking lot. (we can not park on the back parking lot because the it is reserved parking & you will be towed)

Also, the SIHB closes at 6:00 p.m. so all doors will be closed and there is no buzzer to notify us that you are outside. You will need to call LaVerne or Fred. My cell number is: 253.217.9972 LaVerne

I'm unsure if we will have the teleconference available for the meeting however we trying to have available for our meeting.

Please notify LaVerne if you are unable to attend the regular meeting as soon as possible.
