How does an agency get on this list? One of our members must be your passionate advocate. If she has the facts in hand and is willing to present them to our group, she puts her name and the name of your organization on a card at our meeting. If her card is one of the three drawn, then she makes a 7-minute presentation to our members. At the end of the three presentations, we take a vote and the winning agency receives a donation from each of our members.
