The Department of New York is working with Publishing Concepts to produce a state-wide directory of Legionnaires.
To accomplish this, Publishing Concepts will be contacting members, starting mid-June, via mail, email and telephone to see who would like to be included in the directory. For those interested in participating, the directory can include photo and biographical info.
Those wishing to purchase a copy of the directory may pre-order it so the publisher will know how many to print.
