IDIPIC has a new panel Facilitator? She’s Alice Biddulph of Oak Harbor. We’re so pleased to have her on Team IDIPIC! We know you’ll all make her feel welcome as you meet her at panels and IDIPIC events. And JoAnn will stay on as a volunteer for a while so you’ll still see her as a panelist or event helper.
IDIPIC is looking to add 2-3 more board members? If you are interested in being part of a dedicated group of people striving to make our communities less impacted by DUI and our youth by substance use, contact director Mike Diamanti HERE.
