CPSEN Holiday Greeting

On behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, I wish to extend best wishes for this holiday season to you and your family.

This season is the best time of the year to celebrate with family and friends and to enjoy all this holiday season has to offer.  All of us at CPSEN wish to thank you for all your support and participation in our networking events this year. We look forward to seeing you next year as we continue to offer our quarterly networking events.

From all of us at CPSEN, we wish you a Happy Holiday.

Season’s greetings,
